Pride of New Albany
The Pride of New Albany is proud to present their 2015 Marching Band Show THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED!!!
The Wonderful World of Oz will be the back drop of our story, and the show will follow the path of Elphaba (The Wicked Witch of the West) as she discovers who she is and what she stands for.
The storyline is predominately based from the Broadway Musical WICKED. In the musical, the question is raised of whether a person can truly be born wicked, or if wickedness is merely a label thrust upon a person by society. THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED will pay tribute to this idea, and will encourage the audience to journey with the Wicked Witch as she owns her identity, her decisions, and her beliefs, no matter what the cost may be.
THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED with feature music from several movies, books and musicals set in the Land of Oz, including the Main Title from Oz the Great and Powerful, Somewhere Over the Rainbow from the Wizard of Oz, I’m Not That Girl from the Broadway Musical WICKED, and Defying Gravity from the Broadway Musical WICKED.
As the Pride of New Albany enters a new, more competitive season in its long-standing legacy of excellence, it is important that we weave a very clear storyline for our audience, and for our judges. For us, this means turning the football field into a stage and bringing the music to life theatrically. We no longer want you to just hear beautiful music. Instead, we want to provide you with a complete visual experience: aurally, visually, and emotionally.
So journey with us next fall as we bring the World of Oz to life on the marching field!!! Come and see us pave the yellow brick road, create the Emerald City, and see the New Albany Auxiliaries shine as they become the Wicked Witch of the West!
