The Mayor Welcomes You

...to come see The Wizard of Oz! Opening Night is tonight; there are two shows tomorrow and one on Sunday afternoon. Enjoy the photos while we put on the show!

As Mayor of the Munchkin City
In the county of the Land of Oz
I welcome you most regally...

Barrister: But we've got to verify it legally

To see
Mayor: To see
Barrister: If she
Mayor: If she
Barrister: Is morally, ethically
City Father: Spiritually, physically
Mayor: Positively, absolutely

All: undeniably and reliably DEAD.


Coroner: As Coroner, I must aver
I thoroughly examined her
And she's not only merely dead,
She's really most sin-cere-ly dead.

Mayor: Friends, this is a day of independence
For all the Munchkins and their descendants!
Let the joyous news be spread
The Wicked Old Witch at last is DEAD!


We represent the Lollipop Guild...

(I can't believe Bantam13--now 5'8"--
fit into that orange and teal costume
on the left just a few short years ago!)

Mayor: From now on you'll be hist-ory
Barrister: You'll be hist-
Coroner: You'll be hist-
Mayor: You'll be hist-ory
All Munchkins: And we will glor-i-fy your name!
Mayor: You will be a bust
Barrister: Be a bust
Coroner: Be a bust
All Munchkins: In the hall of fame!
Tra la la la la, la la la, la la la...

Great costumes and makeup!!! It looks like so much fun. I think I saw the show you speak of when Bantam 13 wore the orange costume :)
