Liztech Collaboration 2014
The Wizard of Oz
The magical classic, The Wizard of Oz, is coming to East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania in the theatre department’s musical adaption of L. Frank Baum’s novel from April 24-27 at the Smith-McFarland Theatre in the Fine and Performing Arts Building. This version includes memorable songs from the beloved MGM film which is marking its 75th anniversary.
A fundraising initiative between the theatre department and Liztech Jewelry will allow individuals not only the opportunity to purchase unique pins that coincide with characters from the Wizard of Oz, but also the opportunity to support the theatre department.
For every pin from The Wizard of Oz collection sold between April 21-27, either in-store or on-site during one of the performances, 50 percent of the profits will be donated to ESU’s theatre department.
