The Show

The Wizard of Oz Fractured, written by Bryan Bergeron, has a nice twist to our classic Wizard of Oz that we all love. Bergeron was inspired by the Fractured Fairy Tales from the 60s. His spin is supposed to give the fairy tale some adult humor, but also having the original essence to keep the kids entertained. The show runs from 8 PM- 10:30 PM with tickets being $25. No tickets are sold at the door, you will need to call the Surfside Playhouse or visit their website and purchase them online.

The Playhouse

While there to view the show, take a look around and embrace the history that has been made behind those walls. What started as a group of people wanting to have a live theatre group in Brevard County, turned into an actual Playhouse. The Surfside Playhouse hosts 6 shows a season with amazingly talented actors and staff members. As called the Surfside Players, they work hard year round. Not only producing the best plays, but teaching and giving opportunities to fellow hopeful thespians. Starting in 2001 Surfside decided to give local, Brevard County playwrights, the opportunity to submit their plays into a contest and possibly get their play on the stage. Each and every season, Surfside hosts 3 out of 6 productions by the Playwright’s Workshop of Brevard: each production typically displaying 3 new one act plays. This playhouse doesn’t stop here though; Surfside offers Improv classes taught by Mario Busacca, a summer intensive musical Theatre camp, and also helps out with Cocoa Beach’s junior and senior high’s productions. Surfside Players have been around a long time now and have hosted many productions such as: Steel Magnolias, Hello, Dolly!, Grease, Rent, Annie, Godspell, West Side Story, The Rocky Horror Show, The Odd Couple, and many more. With high hopes to keep this non-profit organization around Surfside Players are very welcoming to aspiring thespians, seasoned performers, and anyone with the love of Theatre. Just turn West onto 5th Street South and join in on the fun, or just come by and observe it. For more info visit: http://www.surfsideplayers.com/
