The cast of “The Wizard of Oz at Christmas” pose for their photo Saturday, Jan. 12, after receiving their individual recognition for their accomplishments in LCT’s Nov. 30-Dec. 1 production.

Cast members not available for the photo were: Sophia Bryson, Mia Chei and Noah Marsh.
The group was praised for their dedication and performance and each cast member was individually recognized and presented with a medal displaying the comedy-tragedy mask on the front and the name/date of the production on the back. Each of the cast also received a DVD of the production which had a delightful photo of the actor in costume and was professionally shot and donated by Iron Brand Photographer/LCT Marketing Director Natalie Eberhard. Sixty-seven members of the Lighthouse family joined in the celebration enjoying pizza and punch while watching the slide show of the actors on stage. The slide show is an outstanding collection of each moment of the production and was also professionally produced by Miss Natalie. The celebration ended with photos taken around the beautiful cake decorated by cake artist Nick at Summer Fresh Bakery. Executive Director Lynne Hedrick wants to thank the many people who helped make the production and cast reunion a success. She invites all who are interested in learning more about the Lighthouse Children’s Theatre as well as their future productions and events to like their Facebook page and also by visiting their website at www.lighthousechildrenstheatre.org.
