NTID Performing Arts Department's production of The Wonderful World of Oz will be staged in June-July 2018 as part of NTID's 50th - Anniversary reunion celebration. The June-July performances will be a fundraising effort to support NTID’s performing arts activities. All performances will be in the Robert F. Panara Theatre on the RIT/NTID campus.

Adapted and directed by RIT/NTID alumnus and former performing arts faculty Jim Orr, the production provides a fully-accessible American Sign Language/spoken-English rendition of L. Frank Baum's classic tale of adventure and discovery. Set design is by alumnus Ethan Sinnott.

The production is co-sponsored by MSM Productions, Ltd. Special keepsake playbills will be distributed to attendees at both April and June performances.

Matthew S. Moore, alumnus and president of MSM Productions, Ltd., and founder and chairperson of the NTID Performing Arts Advisory Committee, is providing sponsorship and in-kind support for this production. 

"This is a major milestone for our theater program,” said Moore. “NTID has produced many exciting plays during its first 50 years. In the next 50 years we will be doing more large-scale productions where students and community members will have an opportunity to participate."


Tickets are $35, because this production is a benefit that will help raise money for the theater renovation program.

Panara Theatre, the 1510 Theatre, and the Dance Lab are badly in need of repairs and upgrades.

Your contribution will go a long way toward supporting a program that has nourished the spirits of thousands of RIT/NTID students!
