  • The TASIS Dorado Spring musical production of "Wizard of Oz - Young Performers Edition," directed by Axel Serrant and produced by Drama teacher Lourdeliz Ramos, was a resounding success on both April 10th and the 11th at the PAC!

    Based on the hit movie, Wizard of Oz, made famous by movie star Judy Garland, our production sees Dorothy Gale is swept away from a farm in Kansas to the magical land of Oz, in a tornado and embarking on a quest with her new friends to see the Wizard who can help her return home and help her friends as well.

    From the beginning of the year, a cast and crew of almost 100 talented students from 2nd to 12th-grade and a chorus and musicians from 3rd-12th-grade, have been putting in long hours of rehearsal time, culminating in two wonderful performances. "Congratulations to the cast, the crew and the teachers on their hard work, effort and staying on top of things amongst so many responsibilities. May the theatre continues to be a rainbow bridge that allows us to tell stories and connect to the world and our surroundings with hope and understanding. " director Axel Serrant exclaimed.

    Our talented music department, featuring Ms. Karla Santana, Mr. Fabián Rivera, Mr. Joel Bracero, and Mr. Jonathan Martínez, performed live with our student musicians, conducting and adding to the authentic theatrical experience. The Wizard of Oz band, directed by Mr. Jonathan Martinez, consisted of 15 musicians and a backup vocals ensemble of four vocalists, led by Mr. Joel Bracero. Our talented TD teacher, Ms. Karla Santana, was the show pianist and Mr. Rafael Hernández, the leading vocal coach.

    Seniors that participated in the musical included Michael Calixto as the Scarecrow; Maria Victoria Hayes added her talent to the production as part of the backup chorus, while Christian Torres, Edmond Zacapa, and Yael Rómán worked as theater technicians.

    Ms. Lourdeliz Ramos, TD Drama teacher, assistant director, and production manager, praised her performers after the show: "Thanks to our wonderful cast who persevered for three months giving their all, sacrificing many other activities and commitments along the way. We are SO proud and SO thankful for the energy, the time, the disposition to grow, to work as a team. I love you all, my shining stars! See you next year!" concluded Ms. Lourdeliz.
