Jordan Valley, Canyons District’s school for severely disabled students, this week performed a show with real heart. And brains. And courage.
Jordan Valley students, faculty and staff have been working for about two months on a version of “The Wizard of Oz,” which has been adapted to the special needs of the students at the school. Students and faculty, who were clad in elaborate costumes, played the roles of Dorothy, the Wicked Witch of the West, Glinda the Good Witch, Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow. Students also made appearances as munchkins and flying monkeys.
