Wizard of Oz

In honor of TESOL's 50th Anniversary celebration, a group of TESOLers put together a little show based on the Wizard of Oz--yes, they actually sang songs! A video recording is available online.

In this musical comedy, a talented cast of TESOL "Ozzites" whimsically explore TESOL's past 50 years. Dorothy is hurtled by a Tornado from 1966 (when TESOL began) into 2016.

Will Good Witch Glinda and Professor Marvel succeed in helping Dorothy recover her lost 50 years? Will three ambitious TESOLers--the Cowardly Lion, Tin Woodman, and Scarecrow--find courage, heart, and brain to reach their professional goals?

Watch the video and find out!
