The Tony Award-winning "The Wiz" eases down the road to Ithaca, where Running to Places' (R2P) enthusiastic company goes all out in a collaboration with Circus Culture that will have audiences oohing and aahing and bopping in their seats. The show runs June 21-23 at the State Theatre of Ithaca.

The story is the familiar one: A tornado transports Dorothy (Ella Monroe) into the land of Oz, where she encounters good witches (Shyanne Lewis and Davina Barrett) and bad (Savannah Gonzalez) and acquires companions as confused about themselves as she is: the Scarecrow (Elsbeth O'Toole), the Tinman (Sirus Desnoes), and the Lion (Julianna Cuevas). The Wiz (Mwape Sokoni) – who is not what she seems – sends them on an impossible quest featuring flying monkeys, oppressed Winkies, and a well-aimed bucket of water.

The Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA) is adding a new Ithaca Children & Youth Chorus (ICYC) ensemble, Ancora, for singers ages five to adult. 'Ancora' is an Italian word that is used for multiple English language concepts including 'again', 'still' 'yet', and 'more': an idea that encapsulates the foundation and purpose of the Ancora choir. It is a place for singers of all ages and diverse cultures to come together and make music. A place for past ICYC members to return to the community. A place for current singers continue learning and growing. A place for parents and family members to engage their family and community in making music and forming connections.

Ancora, which will begin rehearsing in the fall of 2019, is a welcoming inter-generational choir that provides a place for anyone and everyone with a love of music to sing together. Emphasis will be placed on the group experience and creating community as well as musical literacy, exploring diverse repertoire, and healthy singing. New members, ICYC alumni, parents and other family members are all welcome.
