Celebrating the Magic of Friendship in Once Upon a Time and Wizard of Oz

For the characters from Disney’s Magic Kingdom and the great Land of Oz, there is nothing more magical than friendship or more fun than embarking upon an adventure with friends. The children in the Third Grade’s production of Once Upon a Time and the Second Grade’s production of the Wizard of Oz recently explored and celebrated the power of friendship in the magical world of make believe. 

Each year, the Third Graders take the audience on a journey through some of Disney’s most beloved stories. Dressed in elaborate costumes, the children presented much-loved tales of friendship, including Snow White and Seven Dwarves, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, and Toy Story, with great excitement and enthusiasm. 

“Once Upon A Time is a Lower School favorite,” said Mrs. Claudia Antoine, Head of Lower School. “The children love singing the songs and acting in the skits. The students talk fondly about their parts for years after the play.”

Earlier this month, the stage of the Carlson Family Theater was once again transformed to the wonderful Land of Oz – complete with Munchkin Land and the Emerald City—as well as Dorothy’s humble, but beloved Kansas. Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and other characters that live over the rainbow, delighted the audience with classic songs of wistfulness, hope, and joy. 

“The Wizard of Oz is a perennial favorite that all of us grew up with, and a cherished tradition at Viewpoint,” said Head of Primary School Cathy Adelman. “We love the message of the story which highlights believing in yourself, valuing friendship, and finding the rewards of following your dreams!”
