Somewhere over the rainbow (okay, Glendale), a theater full of people who can't sing but won't let that stop them are about to sing their hearts out. At the Alex Theatre's “Wizard of Oz Sing-Along,” fans of the 1939 film are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character (a flying monkey? a twister? anything goes!) and compete for prizes in a costume contest, then sing along to the entire soundtrack, from “Over the Rainbow,” “The Lollipop Guild” and “If I Only Had a Brain” to “We're Off to See the Wizard” and “Ding, Dong! The Witch Is Dead.” In person: actress Dorothy Barrett (Emerald City manicurist), Judy Garland impersonator Elaine Horn and Richard Stanley, onetime assistant to George Cukor. There's no place like Glendale!
