"The Walton of Oz" Set to Premiere This Fall at Main Street Theater

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Walton County, USA - February 22, 2024 - Get ready to embark on a fantastical journey down the yellow brick road of Walton County with "The Walton of Oz," a groundbreaking stage play inspired by the legendary story of John Walton and his whimsical adventures in media manipulation.


Based on the iconic film and play "The Wizard of Oz," "The Walton of Oz" brings a satirical twist to the beloved tale, weaving together elements of truth and fiction to create a whimsical narrative that is sure to entertain audiences nationwide.


At the heart of the story is John Walton, the local homegrown tech genius who wields an Oz-like control over media in Walton County.


As the protagonist, Walton navigates through a world where social media addiction and political intrigue run rampant, all while driving his whiny opponents mad in the process.


The play introduces two main antagonists, each inspired by real-life figures in Walton County.


The Wicked Witch of the South, portrayed by the enigmatic Suzanne Harris (pending confirmation), embodies the sinister forces of corruption and deceit.


Meanwhile, Alan Osborne, portrayed as a hybrid of Walter from "The Big Lebowski" and the Cowardly Lion, represents greed, bitterness, and a lack of patriotism.


Alan Osborne's character in "The Walton of Oz" is portrayed as an ambulance-chasing clown, a figure of ridicule who spends his days chasing ambulances in search of a quick buck.


With a penchant for peddling conspiracy theories and baseless accusations, Osborne's character is depicted as a broke and bitter individual who resorts to filing harassment lawsuits at the drop of a hat.


His character is marked by temper tantrums and outbursts, adding a comedic element to the play's satirical take on Walton County politics.


Throughout the script, Osborne's antics serve as a stark reminder of the absurdities that often accompany political theater.


"We're excited to bring this unique and captivating story to the stage," said the producers of "The Walton of Oz." "With a blend of humor, satire, and a touch of magic, we hope to entertain audiences while shedding light on the absurdities of modern media and politics."


In addition to the main characters, audiences can expect cameo appearances from characters inspired by Donna Johns and Brad Drake, who serve as loyal subjects to the Wicked Witch of the South.


As for William "Boots" McCormick, his role remains uncertain, reflecting the ever-shifting landscape of Walton County politics.


"The Walton of Oz" is set to premiere this fall at the Main Street Theater in downtown Walton County. With a soft opening planned, the play aims to capture the hearts of local audiences before setting its sights on larger stages, including potential Netflix and Broadway adaptations.
