press release: A twister warps Dorothy through her computer screen into the land of the wacky, weird and wizardly Oz, who in this day and age resides in cyberspace.
This OZ story written by PTP Founding Director Teddy Studt in 2000 with her neighbor family represents the very last work of her lengthy adaptation career. As Teddy ventured into computer usage in her mid-sixties, she decided to utilize her new-found knowledge to create a cyber land for OZ. Remembering the delight she took in updating this cherished story seems appropriate for a spring project during our celebratory anniversary year. Although many aspects have been updated since 2000, much actually has remained surprisingly stable in our computer domain, including the main characters of Dot and M ouse. PTP plans to continue celebrating our Thirty Year Anniversary journeying through the virtual reality of the children’s stage knowing there is no place like home.
