Key to Awesomeness: A large ensemble cast led by Coufee Goring-Wilson as Dorothy, Jackson Camp as the Scarecrow, Sebastian Aragon as the Tinman and Lou Levine as the Lion presented The Wiz at Brookfield High School (BHS). The play was directed by John LaMendola. Other principal roles were played by Zach Katz as The Wiz, Shea Westlake as Aunt Em, Krisa FitzGerald as Addaperle, Stefanie Sideman as Evillene and Leanna Pizzo as Glinda.
Lauren Beardsley and Krisa FitzGerald were the dance captains and Jessica Richards led the crew as Stage Manager with Mark Koh as the Technical Director. The show was accompanied by a live pit band of BHS students conducted by Scott Friend.
Three of the four performances were very close to sold out.
“The BHS Curtain Players wish to thank the Brookfield community for coming out and supporting the arts,” LaMendola said.
