Upper Valley Connection present's 'Alice in Wonderland'

Theater Camp, a production of Upper Valley Connection, has been around for 11 years now. This week, Theater Camp is underway in Leavenworth, with shows planned for Friday and Saturday at Cascade High School.

Upper Valley Connection founder and director, Terry Anderman, has been there every step of the way. But after this year's production, she is stepping down as director.

"It feels good. We hired Maren (Cagle) back in October and she has been working with me since then. She has had a chance to be part of everything we do through the course of the season, which is great. She'll be with us the whole week of theater camp," Anderman said.

The transition will go great, Anderman said, but she is not going to miss the paperwork. This time of year, she is buried in paperwork. And even though she is stepping away, she will still be involved because of her son Daniel.

"I have been telling my board since the beginning, you have to make sure it continues for Daniel. Somebody finally said to give them a deadline. I finally said am done June of 2015, for real. They stepped up," Anderman said. "We aren't going anywhere. Daniel is obviously part of it. I am available to answer questions."

This Dorothy comes from Cashmere, not Kansas
In the new Cascade All District musical, the Wizard of Oz, there's a tornado, but this one emanates a little closer to home, in Cashmere rather than Kansas. It is one of the many new twists in the upcoming school production, which features kids from Kindergarten to 12th grade.

Cascade Head Drama Coach Mandi Wickline said her Assistant Director Ted Fredericks has been plugging for Wizard of Oz for a number of years. But Wickline had become tired of seeing the same show done over and over again, based on the classic movie.

"The only way I would do Wizard of Oz is if we did it totally different. We are modernizing everything. It is a complete rethinking of the show," Wickline said.

For one, Kansas is now Cashmere. And Toto is now a five pound chihuahua named Julio. The ruby slippers are now ruby color Converse sneakers. And Dorothy now lives in an orchard.
