2009 The Year of Valley History
Program for The Wizard of Oz at Corvallis High School.
On May 6-7-8, in 1983, a production of about Dorothy and her red slippers came to the San Fernando Valley. Thanks to Bronwyn Ralph, we know that the Stage Manager was Cheryl Wiley and that The Wicked Witch of the West was played by Tina Scourtis. Who played Aunt Em? Or, who was the Cowardly Lion?
Your Museum Community, working with important groups such as the Committee for Corvallis History, wants future generations to see the roles or jobs their mothers and grandmothers in this school production.
Here's an example of why your involvement as a member in the Museum Community is important. Recently, a 1945 Corvallis High School year book was offer to The Museum for our library. We'd like to buy it for the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley before it vanishes into the Never Land of e-bay. We just need the budget.
