“Just go out and find it and do it.”

Michael Raiford, set designer for the Kansas City Ballet’s “The Wizard of Oz,”  says he “fell” into the profession, but encourages other aspiring set designers to get their feet wet wherever they can.

Every Tuesday and Thursday through Oct. 12, Flatland looks at the various people and professions that go into creating “The Wizard of Oz.” Follow #MeDorothyDoc on Twitter and Facebook, and look for KCPT’s documentary, “Me, Dorothy…and This Road to Oz,” at 8 p.m. Nov. 16 on KCPT.
