Retro RFH ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’

As the effects of Hurricane Florence brushed by the Rumson-Fair Haven area, they culminated in a bevy of rainbow sightings on Tuesday evening.  So, with thoughts of what might be lingering Somewhere Over the Rainbow in mind, memories of a staged Oz skit at RFH come to mind.

The year was 1974 and the RFH stage was set for the Freshmen Follies — yes, there was such a thing back then. This crew of RFHers decided to do a Wizard of Oz spoof. All characters in place, even Toto, we’re not sure if they found out what was somewhere over that rainbow, but they had fun in the process.

Take a look. Who was Dorothy? How about Toto? The Tin Man? Recognize these characters?
