Millions have experienced the timeless tale of THE WIZARD OF OZ, either through the original book by L. Frank Baum, or the classic 1939 film starring Judy Garland. Yet, the new movie BOURBON WHIZ offers a modern, more adult take on the childhood favorite. Produced by Armando Leduc, of Sketchy Characters Productions, the show stars Marisa Welles as Dotty, a young girl who lives in Prudence, Kansas, a small town where alcohol is sold every day – except Sundays, due to dry county laws. Longing for a stiff drink, not to mention excitement, she and her friends wind up on a wild journey to New Orleans. There, she meets some twisted variations on The Cowardly Lion, The Tin Man, and The Scarecrow. Together, they team up to battle the Wicked Stripper Of The West Bank (played by Jacqueline Fleming, who also appeared as Harriet Tubman in ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, and to seek the mysterious and magical Bourbon Whiz. Leduc describes BOURBON WHIZ as a collision of musical theatre and Bourbon Street.
