TKA Closes Curtain On ‘The Wizard Of Oz’

The King’s Academy’s Middle School Theatre Company produced and performed six amazing shows of The Wizard of Oz to sold-out audiences.

More than 200 actors and singers from grades 4 through 8 performed using the original set from Broadway’s 1993 show at Madison Square Garden in New York.

The students were especially motivated to do their best in memory of Alex Brooks, who would have been a munchkin in the show. The Wizard of Oz was dedicated to her memory.

The TKA High School Theatre Company will be performing Little Women Jan. 27 through Feb. 1.

The King’s Academy will be presenting Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera April 24-26 and May 1-3.

Ticket sales open in December and will sell out quickly. For tickets, call (561) 686-4244, ext. 362.
