“The Wiz” Author Visits Staples Image
Tony Award-nominated writer Bill Brown visited with the Staples Players at Westport’s Staples High School today. He is the author of “The Wiz,” which won seven Tony Awards when it was on Broadway in 1975. Brown spoke to students for more than an hour and then answered questions. The Staples Players production of “The Wiz” opens Nov. 1, and Brown told the group he plans to attend the performance. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

One thought on ““The Wiz” Author Visits Staples

  1. William Brown was interesting and engaging and the kids really enjoyed his visit.  Staples Players have been incredibly lucky to have had visits by so many artists who give of themselves by taking the time to come and share their experiences.  And the artists seem to enjoy talking to such a bright, informed and polite audience! 

    Anyone interested in tickets to performances of The WIZ, playing Nov. 10, 11, 12, 17 and 18 can order now by visiting the website:, downloading the ticket order form and following the directions on the form for ordering by mail.
