Sweet Tracks!

In Phase III+, NTPA’s “standard” production method will be to mimic some professional theatre environments by employing “sweet-tracks” that allow ensembles to pre-record group vocal elements such that during live performances they may project at less than 100% of volume. This enables the performer to focus on choreography and other activities, compensates for volume loss due to masks, and provides a better online audio experience. Studies have shown this approach also reduces “transmission risk” by up to 95% versus regular full-volume onstage singing.

Synopsis

The most beloved tale of all time comes to life on the stage as only NTPA can do. Dorothy and her three friends trot delightfully and tunefully down that fabled road of yellow brick in The Wizard of Oz. After a tornado whisks her away to the magical land of Oz, young Dorothy Gale teams up with a Scarecrow, a Tin Woodsman and a Cowardly Lion to find the mighty Wizard of Oz, who can send her home. Along the way, they must avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West, who is trying to steal the mysterious magic slippers that once belonged to her evil sister… but are now on Dorothy’s feet. Dorothy eventually learns just how magical friendship can be and how wonderful it can feel to go home again.

This is our special 30th Anniversary production, and will feature Mike Mazur as THE WIZARD. Don’t miss this chance to celebrate the history..and the future.. of NTPA with this great production!
