Popular Devotee Parody of “The Wizard of Oz” Now Available Online
Creative dramatic presentations have been part of the ISKCON culture since the earliest days, with devotees performing at Sunday Feasts beginning in the late 1960s. The Bhaktivedanta Players, the main drama group at the Manor, recently performed a Krishna-Conscious version of the classic 1939 film, "The Wizard of Oz." The parody pantomime, called "The Wizard of Om," was so popular that it was performed three times in a single day in the Manor's theatre and was especially appreciated by the youth. The performance was filmed on December 17, 2023, and was made available this week on YouTube.
