The family friendly musical will run  at the Lauderhill Performing Arts Center (LPAC) through December 31st. The winner of 7 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and 5 Drama Desk Awards, The Wiz retells Baum’s tale of Dorothy, who is transported by a tornado to a world of Munchkins, witches, and magic. On her way to the Emerald City to meet the Wizard of Oz, who she believes can help her get back to Kansas, she encounters the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion – friends who help her battle the Wicked Witch of the West – and eventually learn that there really is ‘no place like home’. The Wiz will be directed by Lloyd Culbreath who brings years of theatrical experience to the production. He has performed on Broadway, and on tour for over 25 years as a dancer, singer, actor, teacher, dance captain, stage manager, and assistant and associate choreographer.

December 14 to 23-“Breadcrumbs”, A Dark Fairy Tale with a Time-Bending Twist-Presented by Primal Forces-The play, written by Jennifer Haley, is an emotional drama that keeps the audience off-balance as it zips back and forth in time between a dark past and an uncertain future. “Breadcrumbs is a complex, time-travel drama in which an aging writer doesn’t know if the mysterious new stranger in her life can help unravel her past…or if she has darker intentions. The roles require great virtuosity of the actresses, and we are thrilled to have Angie Radosh and Jacqueline Laggy in this production, ” said Director Keith Garsson. Theories of identity are put under the microscope in this time-bending drama as reclusive fiction writer (Angie Radosh) with a fragile mental state must depend upon a troubled young caretaker (Jaqueline Laggy) to complete her latest project. In a symbiotic battle of wills, they delve into the dark woods of the past, unearthing secrets that shatters their notions of language, loneliness and essential self.   Performances are Fri & Sat at 8pm, Sun at 2pm; Tickets $30-$35 at www.primalforces.com or call 866-811-4111.

SPECIAL: Try Indoor Skydiving at iFLY Fort Lauderdale!   iFLY, the world’s largest indoor skydiving operator, has announced the introduction of a first-of-its-kind virtual reality experience to complement current flight offerings. Consumers will “jump” at the chance to take indoor skydiving to new “heights,” experiencing near-real-life skydiving sights in some of the nation’s most beautiful destinations – like Southern California, Hawaii, Switzerland and Dubai without setting foot in (or out of) an airplane. Fliers will also see themselves seamlessly jumping from a plane through a hyper-realistic free-falling experience, with complete immersion via iFLY’s state-of-the-art VR helmet and headset. The experience utilizes first-of-its-kind virtual reality technology application, powered by Samsung Gear VR headsets and iFLY’s wind tunnel technology, allowing participants to combine the thrill of skydiving from the perspective of a professional skydiver all in a safe and controlled environment. “The idea of a virtual reality flight experience has been a dream of the iFLY brand for more than two decades, but the technology wasn’t there,” said Dave Kirchhoff, iFLY CEO. “VR headsets are nothing new but nobody is applying VR technology to real-life scenarios like this. We are truly pushing boundaries to make this iFLY experience one-of-a-kind by making the dream of flight more tangible and more real than ever before.” All participating flyers must first complete iFLY’s pre-flight training course and participate in several training flights before jumping into VR. The iFLY Virtual Reality Flight Experience is available to individuals ages eight and up. For more information and scheduling a visit to iFLY Fort Lauderdale, visit www.iflyworld.com/fort-lauderdale or call 954-280-4359.
