THE NOLEN OF OZ – SET IN THE LAND OF 8.0 MIXED
CASTING CALL FOR DTA PRODUCTIONS
After the success of The Return of the Kelly, DTA Productions and Brookhaven Community Theater are now having an open casting call for the heart-warming musical production, The Nolen of Oz.
Our heroes are on another quest of sorts, but these heroes are on a very different road indeed. Glenda the Mixed Good Witch has given Dorothy the ruby racquet from the Wicked Witch of SpringPark but she has still not found her way home to Nationals. First, she must travel safely to seek advice from the Nolen of Oz. She is joined in her adventure by the Dallas men’s upper tri-level teams, the Dallas men’s 8.5 combo teams, and every woman who has ever played 8.0 mixed. [Editor’s note: that’s a big crowd but there have proven to be a lot more flying monkeys than anyone would have ever guessed.]
Even with the ruby racquet, the path to Nationals is treacherous and the Wicked Witch of SpringPark (even though he seems to be dead this year) has a sister that now lives at Greenhill. Our heroes arrive in Oz and the wise Nolen of Oz agrees to grant each of them their heart’s desire, but only if they bring him the Wicked Witch of Greenhill’s tri-level nationals trophy. “It’s a very dangerous request,” says Dorothy, “will you and your royal 4.5 guard be joining us?” Oz looked around the palace, “I can join you but my royal guard seems to have disappeared after the third match of the season.”
You know the story from here - winged monkeys attack, Dorothy is captured, the Wicked Witch of Greenhill is killed by Dorothy slinging mud on him – but do you really know the true story? Based on my review of the script so far, none of us do.
So, with that in mind, and given the fact that you people just can’t seem to stop talking about mixed, it’s now a mini-series. Watch every month this year to see if our heroine and her merry band can make their way home to Nationals or will the winged monkeys regroup and seek revenge. Find out if the Wicked Witches are really dead, is the Nolen of Oz really all-knowing, and will Dorothy ever find her way back home. Remember, there’s no place like Nationals, there’s no place like Nationals, there’s no place like Nationals.
