In addition to Murphy (who was the unanimous MVP), other highlights included:   Victor Legarreta as the Cowardly Lion (channeling Bert Lahr in the very best way), the mad tap dancing skills of Christopher Russell as the Tinman and Eileen Janesz, Kelsey Schergen and Tricia Zuskind as the apple-throwing, scene-stealing Trees in the “If I Only Had A Heart” number.

Another great choreography number was the mother/daughter duo, “Momma, I’m a Big Girl Now.” There were six women: Edna and Tracy, Prudy (Rachel Adams) and Penny, and Velma (Michelle Blake) and Amber (Tricia Zuskind) Each family pair was different from the other two, not only in physical appearance, but also in the way that they interacted. The acting was wonderful.
