This year the EMS Drama Club will be presenting
OZ! The Musical
A fun adaptation of the original story of Oz with all the same characters, but maybe not quite the way you remember them. This OZ takes Dorothy on a journey to meet hip-hop munchkins, a country scarecrow, a jazzy tin man, a tap dancing lion, a blues-singing witch, Vegas-style wizard, and let’s not forget those flying monkeys!
Congratulations to the cast of OZ! The Musical!!!
We had over 40 talented students come out for auditions and made casting super hard for this production. Thanks to all for being a part of the audition process. Some students were cast in multiple roles so please check the entire cast list. We will see ALL CAST AND CREW after school on TUESDAY until 4:15pm in the cafeteria. This is an important meeting as the entire cast and crew will not be all together again until January. Please remember to bring your signed Drama Participation form and participation fee to this meeting. I am so excited to get started with this wonderful group!
I apologize for any misspelled names- I did the best I could reading the student’s handwriting. ☺

Welcome to the EMS Drama Club webpage!
Here is the Oz January Rehearsal Schedule. Remember rehearsals are now at the high school. Please keep an eye who exactly is needed and on the end times as they will change as we get closer to our show.
Please make sure your student is memorizing lines, songs, blocking, and choreography as they are off book in January. Getting together with friends to practice over the Winter Break is a great idea as we do not have time to go back and reteach anything. In middle school it is their responsibility to practice and memorize on their own time.
Can't wait to see everyone in the new year- Happy Holidays!
