It wasn’t your usual ‘Wizard of Oz’, this was the The Wonderful Wizard of Oz which took a humorous spin on the old standard and the audience loved it. Hannah Neilson was awarded Best Actress for her role as Dorothy.

Take Five was awarded Best Actor – Matt O’Brien as Greg Baxtor, Best Supporting Actress – Alex Stone as Dan Perez and Best Supporting Actress – Sharon Stone as Sarah Prescott.
