The Oz Brothers will appear on the Children’s Stage at the Deep Valley Book Festival
MANKATO, MINN. — The Oz Brothers will appear at the 2017 Deep Valley Book Festival in Mankato on Saturday, October 7 at the Mankato Event Center.
Join impressionists Tom Hendricks and Jeff Kortman at 1:00 pm as they take a trip down the Yellow Brick Road as the Scarecrow and Lion to meet Dorothy and all your favorites from the Wizard of Oz. Audience members will become part of the story as they play main characters and create sound effects. As children learn about the story that has been America’s favorite for decades, they will also learn valuable lessons from the Oz characters.
Other children’s activities include Storytime’s by children’s book authors Eileen Beha, Nancy Loewen, Kevin and Vicky McLaughlin, Monica Zrust and Michelle Zimmerman from the Taylor Library, and Dougy’s Balloon Twisting Show and Lonesome Ron the singing cowboy.
