Artists from the production popped up in various local cafes, bakeries and eateries encouraging outdoor dining and delivery/takeout.
Attendees will also get to indulge in “picnic in Oz.” San Marino Café, a female-owned is catering company, will provide “Munchkin Picnic Boxes” to be enjoyed in the car before the show (included in ticket price).
