We Went to See the Munchkin, the Wonderful Munchkin of Oz

On Friday night our family went to see the Footlight Theatre production of "The Wizard of Oz" at the Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby.  Our 8 year old friend, Elise, auditioned for and got the part of a Munchkin in the show.  She worked very hard over the past few months, rehearsing, memorizing, and preparing.  We were thrilled to be there to celebrate her accomplishment and enjoy such a great production!

On Friday we went to see The Wizard of Oz.  My friend Elise was in it.  My favourite part was when  the Munchkins did their procession. My favourite songs were "Munchkinland" and "Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead".

Hannah says:

I really loved The Wizard of Oz. I thought that the girl who played Dorothy was really good.  At the beginning her mic wasn't working properly but she did a really good job of going along with it.  My favourite character was the lion. I thought he was really funny.  I also really liked the Munchkins. They looked really funny in their bonnets and costumes.  My favourite song is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".  The way they did the tornado was really cool.

Here is "our" star of the show, Elise, basking in the accolades of her adoring fans:
