The North Conway Public Library has partnered with Arts in Motion Theater Co. again to present the Tony-Award-winning musical The Wiz on Sunday, Nov. 9, 2014, at the Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse in North Conway Village. The event will benefit the North Conway Public Library.
Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, prepared by the best local chefs, will be offered at 5:30 p.m., and the performance will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Playhouse. Ticket price is $40 per person and includes the buffet, performance, a 50/50 raffle, and a Chinese auction.
Tickets must be purchased in advance at North Conway Public Library. Reception-only tickets will be available at a price of $25.
The Wiz is the Motown remake of L. Frank Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz” with soul music and lyrics by Charlie Smalls and book by William F. Brown. It is the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
The North Conway Public Library is a privately funded library that is free and open to the public; large enough to offer a broad selection and small enough to respond to the reading needs and preferences of its users. The library receives no regular funding from the town of Conway, the State of New Hampshire, or the federal government; therefore, it depends on donations, corporate sponsors, and fundraising programs like this.
