This weekend, Coppell residents can travel to the magical land of Oz by watching Theatre Coppell’s performances of “The Wizard of Oz”.

The play is Frank Baum’s story, dramatized by Robert Batson. Theatre Coppell has performed weekly since April 5; the next shows tomorrow and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

Coppell High School juniors Drew Scrivner and Rachel Tanel both participate in CHS theater and are part of the “The Wizard of Oz” show.

“I decided to audition because I wanted to do another show this year, and I really enjoy doing shows at Theatre Coppell,” Scrivner said. “I’ve done shows there before, and they’re switching to a new theater next year, and I really wanted to do a final show there.”

Scrivner plays the Scarecrow, a well-known character Dorothy meets during her journey on the Yellow Brick Road.

“What I really like about the show is it’s such a classic, and it’s just fun to be a character people know,” Scrivner said. “I really like playing the Scarecrow because it suits who I am. He’s thin and very outgoing, and he’s a fun character to play.”
