CLASSIC,

if I could do it,” Ronnow said.
“It’s a challenge and in my
acting experience, most of the
roles that I have played have
been sort of similar to who I
am. I wanted to be the Wicked
Witch really bad because it’s
just so opposite and fun. I’ve
just been mixing together the
Joker and the kind of insane
crazy mean stuff and then just
doing what comes naturally to
me. It’s just all kind of mixed
together to be this character.”
Playing Glinda, the good
witch, has been easier for
McNary senior Sydnie Gould.
“It's so much fun,” Gould
said. “I love it. I get to be pink. I
keep calling myself a puff pastry.
That's basically what Glinda is. I
love playing her. She's just really
happy and fun and gets to clap
along with the munchkins.”
Gould, Ronnow and the
rest of the McNary drama
department debuted Wizard
of Oz on Thursday, Nov. 9 in
the Ken Collins Theater. The
musical runs Friday, Nov. 10 at
7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 11 at 2
and 7 p.m. as well as Nov. 16-
17 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 18 at 2
and 7 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for adults
and $7 for students and available
online at mcnary-theatre.

Over the Rainbow Tea
Parties will also take place at
noon before the matinees, and
include treats, face painting,
photo opportunities with the
characters and admission to the
show for $12.
Grace Condello, who was in
the ensemble in Beauty and the
Beast and The Addams Family, is
playing her fi rst lead as Dorothy.
“I’ve never had this
experience before and being
Dorothy of all leads is kind of
crazy because she’s in the entire
show but it’s been so much
fun,” Condello said. “It’s kind
of a dream come true for me.
Dorothy is just a dream role
for every alto. It’s just been an
incredible experience.”
Condello did already have
a relationship with Over the
Rainbow.
“It was my fi rst solo I ever
did so it was really special to
me,” Condello said. “It’s such
a great song, it’s a classic and I
love singing it.”
Condello is putting a
different take on Dorothy.
“I’m trying to play Dorothy

as less of a whiney teenage girl,
which she can defi nitely be
played as,” Condello said. “I’ve
kind of taken my inspiration
from Rapunzel in Tangled. She
goes out of the tower for the
fi rst time and she has no idea
what’s happening and she’s
taking it all in and her energy
and enthusiasm in that, I’m
trying to draw from her. Instead
of being whiney, being more
feisty and trying to fi gure things
out more for myself.”
Condello's favorite dance
number comes from a song
that's not even in the movie—
The Jitterbug.
“It’s exhausting but it’s totally
worth it,” she said. “When we
fall on the ground, we really
are falling on the ground in
exhaustion because it just takes
it out of you. But it’s super fun.”
McNary choir director
Joshua Rist's dog, Johann
Sebastian Bach, is playing Toto.
“He is such a good dog,”
Condello said. “It’s unreal.”
McNary seniors Matthew
Albright, Steven Cummings
and Brian Gragg are playing
the Tin Man, Scarecrow and
Cowardly Lion.
“That's my mom's favorite
movie so I've been watching it
since I was little,” Cummings
said of the Wizard of Oz. “I
decided I didn't want to re-
watch the movie because
scarecrow is one of my favorite
characters and I knew if I
watched it I'd pretend to be
Ray Bolger the whole time.”
Jacob Fritts (Wizard of Oz),
Kennadi Thomas (Emerald
Guard), Madelyn Hurst (Aunt
Em) and Ricky Galvan (Uncle
Henry) make up the rest of the
cast, which also includes an
ensemble and 18 munchkins
made up of Whiteaker and City
Dance Theatre students.
