I never visited The Land of Oz, an amusement park that thrived during the '70s on North Carolina's Beech Mountain. Though, I was able to look down on the park from atop the highest point of the White Lightning Trail at Beech Mountain Resort when I went skiing there.

It looked liked a very well kept park at the time and though not open on those cold winter days I imagined what fun it must have been for the people that performed there as well as the visitors and their children.
Today I ran across this article in The Daily Beast, Follow the Yellow Brick Road...to North Carolina by Nina Strochlic and it reminded me of the park.
Considering how long it has been dormant, (it closed in 1980), it still looks pretty good and piques the imagination to think about what it must have been like in it's heyday.
In 1990 it started opening for two days every year in what is known as the Autumn at Oz Festival to the delight of former visitors and employees. A time to remember what it was like to work and play there.
Below is a film by Sam Howe and Jessie Whitman, The Land of Oz, that shows the park as it is now and gives a bit of history about how it came to be and what forced it's closure.

Pat jumped into acting head first a couple of years ago after the recession took a toll on his business. He has made rapid progress. After a year of acting classes at The Actors Lab in Charlotte, North Carolina he was asked to teach a couple of classes there. One for beginners and another for teens.
So it seems Mr. Dortch has been on a crash course in the acting business and wanted to lay a good foundation before he starts to build.
The building process continues with meeting the right people. Studying under acting coach J.D. Lewis of The Actors Lab was a good choice. Meeting folks there like Joe Chiazza of 5Ahead Films was also a good start. Joe is a wonderful cinematographer and co-director of the Door to Door Web series written by Rachel Woodhouse and Justin Xavier who he also met at the acting classes. The Door to Door series is a comedy in which Pat plays the overly exuberant manager of a sales company. A quirky look at a day in the life of a salesman and his sales team.
For his role in Out Of One's Misery, Pat was prepared. Writer and producer Michael Sharpe told me that Pat fit the part perfectly and he knew in his mind the part was Pat's before he left the room.
So it was sink or swim and Pat's definitely a swimmer!
Check out the film and interview below to see what you think.
Experience brings wisdom, and if that's the case Tim Ross has a plethora of wisdom. With a history in acting that ranges from the west coast to the east, commercial to independent, Tim's got plenty to teach and there's much to be learned from him!

He's been on soaps, movies, commercials, and continues to strive for more. Anyone interested in acting would benefit from checking this video out for advice from someone who's definitely been there!
