Follow The Yellow Brick Road...To Serenbe!

Posted: Updated:

With the lush green lawns and friendly neighbors, Serenbe is kind of like the Emerald City.

So, it's the perfect place for a unique new production of "The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz." Serenbe Playhouse is presenting the production, which runs through August 2nd and is based on the classic L. Frank Baum book that inspired the 1939 film.

But, before you go, there's something you should know -- there's no physical playhouse in Serenbe. Artistic Director Brian Clowdus stages productions at various sites around the community. It's called "site-specific" performance -- and immerses the audience in an environment that works along with the play being performed.

So, strap on your ruby slippers and prepare to follow the yellow brick road through a real haunted forest! And watch out for the amazing puppets crafted by Atlanta's Center for Puppetry Arts! Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken went behind-the-scenes of this unique production -- and may have had a few run-ins with the Wicked Witch of the West.
