It’s always a fun adventure when you think of something to do at the last minute and it ends up being an unexpected surprise!
My cousins Sylvia and Melinda visited Austin to attend 2 different workshops. As we were sitting at home one afternoon trying to think of something to do, the word “theater” was mentioned. This reminded me that there was a performance of the Wizard of Oz scheduled at our local Zilker Hillside Theatre. All we needed was a blanket to sit on and off we went!
As we approached the theater area, the colorful blankets, umbrellas, and chairs appeared. It was as if we had walked into a box of bright colors. It was beautiful!
The performance was excellent! It followed the original, except with a few lines here and there which added some humor. It is Austin, after all—keeping it weird is what we do!
