It wouldn’t be The Wizard of Oz without the Wicked Witch’s minions. Some of our dancers fly across the stage in harnesses, wearing amazing winged-monkey costumes created by designer Liz Vandal. In addition, the sea of monkeys is also thanks to puppets created by theatrical designer Nicholas Mahon.
Special thanks to Kansas City Ballet and Artistic Director Devon Carney for sharing this video of their production. The spectacular costume designer for The Wizard of Oz is Liz Vandal, whose work has been featured in many Webre choreographed ballets, as well as other theatrical productions, including Cirque du Soleil.
