The Wizard of Oz: A Magical Mercy-Timon Musical

by cnewman

It's a story that has enchanted children and adults for more than 100 years. Alive with magic, excitement and terrible witches, it still manages to create warm, fuzzy feelings of family and love. It is, of course, The Wizard of Oz, and Mount Mercy Academy and Bishop Timon St. Jude High School brought it to life once again.

The cast includes, Dorothy, played by Mount Mercy Academy's Ashley Tombolesi, the Scarecrow will be played by Timon senior, Matt Leahy, in the Tin Man role is Timon sophomore, Jonathan Nguyen, Timon sophomore Scott Driscoll will play the Cowardly Lion. Portraying Glinda is Mount Mercy's Midge Bishop, the Wicked Witch of the West will be portrayed by Michaela Lee and Timon junior, Dominic Hannon will play the Wise and Powerful Wizard of Oz. Students from area elementary schools will play the roles of the munchkins and the townspeople of Emerald City.

Congratulations on a fantastic performance! Check out the Mercy Photo Gallery or check out our Facebook page for photos from the show.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
