The Wizard of No illustrates that sticking up for yourself isn’t always easy, but it’s worth it. That’s the lesson young Billy learns after he smokes a cigarette, afraid that his friends will think he is a “wimp.” “The development of self-esteem, the understanding of media techniques and the resisting of peer pressure are lessons that can’t be stressed too often. This production reinforces these concepts effectively.”—School Library Journal. “A wonderfully acted fantasy that will inspire audiences of all ages to be assertive, and remind them why addictions are unhealthy.” — Wilson Library Bulletin. Produced by J. Gary Mitchell. An MTI release.
