|‘Wizard of Oz’ on HHS stage this weekend|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Dedicated to the memory of Velma Biddle, the HHS drama department performance of “The Wizard of Oz” is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Nov. 21-22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Heginbotham Auditorium at HHS.
During the Friday night performance, director Eric Conklin will be recognizing Delta Kappa Gamma for the Velma Biddle memorial moneys that were used to purchase the hanging microphones on the stage.
Biddle was a long-time supporter of the arts and wrote many reviews for HHS productions during the 1980s and ’90s.
Advertising sponsors of the printed program coordinated by the Holyoke Enterprise for the 2013 musical were also acknowledged by Conklin, as a portion of those program proceeds went toward the new microphones, as well.
“The Wizard of Oz” is written by L. Frank Baum with music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg.
When action begins, Dorothy Gale is swept away to a magical land in a tornado and embarks on a quest to see the Wizard who can help her return home.
