Opening Night - The Wiz
Here he comes! The Wiz has decided to visit the land of Winchester. So put on your green glasses and ease on down the road with us. Y'all got it? You can spot me and the Silver Slipper Singers over in the house left balcony providing some soulful "pit singers" vocals during all performances.
