The recent Syracuse Stage production of The Wizard of Oz is the story you know well but was told in a new way with tumbling and flying elements from acrobats turned actors from New York’s 2 Ring Circus.The family favorite musical, directed by Donna Drake, was Syracuse Stage's holiday co-production with the Syracuse University Department of Drama. The creative team for Wizard of Oz included: Lighting Designer Herrick Goldman, Scenic Designer, Linda Buchanan; Costume Designer, Jess Ford; Projection Designer, Kate Freer; Sound Designer, Jon Herter; Wig Designer, Dave Bova; and Associate Lighting Designer, Lisa Renkel.
