I'm getting pretty excited now. We have a week and a day until we will gather together and show how we love the Wizard of Oz.
I have collected WOZ items since I was a young one.
Watched the Wizard of Oz in all of it's reinventions, the Wiz, Muppets Wizard of Oz.
Gone to local presentations of WOZ.
I have read all the books that L. Frank Baum wrote as well as other authors who gave their spin on what the land of Oz would, could, or should be like.
That is what motivated me to have this fun adventure to begin with but last year I was charged to do this again because....my love of Oz is different than that of so many people I have met and are friends with because of our shared passion.
I am a doll collector and the little witch's that have been used to advertise Celebrate Oz are porcelain Marie Osmond baby witches. They to me are the sweetest of the dolls that represent The Wicked Witch and Glinda.
These are the Madame Alexander Cloth doll green and pink team leaders and are some of my favorites as well.
If you have any doubts about coming and playing Celebrate Oz, please don't. We are going to enjoy each others company and the fun that this movie, book, stage play has brought into our world.
See you on the 19th with sparkles, glitter and magick.
