Manila, Philippines, August 17, 2012 — A day before the musical opened, Repertory Philippines’ (Rep) “The Wizard of Oz,” held a press preview at Greenbelt One’s Onstage Theatre with Cara Barredo as Dorothy Gale, along with James Stacey as the Scarecrow, Hans Eckstein as the Tin Man, and Oliver Usison as the Lion.

The musical was based on the classic children’s book “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” featuring book and lyrics by Jim Eiler, and score by Jeanne Bargy and Eiler. None of the popular songs from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s film adaptation titled “The Wizard of Oz” (1939), starring Judy Garland, were included in this stage adaptation — it was a completely different musical presentation.
