Louise Reichlin & Dancers/ LA Choreographers & Dancers presents The Patchwork Girl of Oz. Celebrating 40 years of presenting soulful, imaginative dance that takes audience members on their own journey of self-discovery, Louise Reichlin & Dancers/ Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers presents an inspiring weekend filled with dance and multimedia. In this adapted narrated story, the dance follows characters from the “Wizard of Oz” and introduces new ones like the exuberant title character the Patchwork Girl. Another new character, Ogo, a sheltered youngster, sees his Uncle turned into a marble rock and must make friends and work with others to bring him to life again. This production is appropriate for all ages from tiny ones to discriminating grandparents. Although known as stories for the young, L. Frank Baum was way ahead of his time, with super-strong female characters, diversity as part of his storyline, and advanced technology – he has Glinda, Sorcerous of the South, invent wireless technology at the beginning of the story- and this was in 1913! Tickets – Youth – $8 and GeneralAdults – $16
