If you asked a random selection of people of English- speaking origin for a list of their favorite books, in all likelihood The Wonderful Wizard of Oz would feature in there somewhere. The movie would surely also do well in the most-popular-piece-of-celluloid- ever stakes.That all-pervading popularity element, and feelgood factor, will come through in abundance in the forthcoming rendition of the L. Frank Baum classic tale by the Jerusalem-based Encore! Educational Theatre Company. The current run of the show takes in six performances at the Hirsch Theater at Beit Shmuel, on January 10, 11 and 12 (7:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. respectively) and January 17, 18 and 19 (7:30 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.).
