I know I’m not the only one who has really fond memories of watching The Wizard of Oz as a child. It brings back great memories and being able to see it come to life on stage in Charlotte will be even more magical. This year’s tour celebrates the original 1939 MGM movie with special effects that we imagine will be spectacular and will sweep audiences away to Kansas & the land of Oz!
This beloved tale, in which a Kansas farm girl travels over the rainbow to discover the magical power of home, has been entertaining audiences for generations. THE WIZARD OF OZ includes the songs “Over The Rainbow,” “Munchkinland (Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead),” “If I Only Had A Brain/A Heart/The Nerve,” “We’re Off To See The Wizard (Follow The Yellow Brick Road),” “The Jitterbug,” and “The Merry Old Land of Oz” and “If I Were King Of The Forest.” It’s a faithful adaptation of the film recreating the dialogue and structure of the MGM classic nearly scene for scene, though it is adapted for live stage performance.
Ovens Auditorium (Charlotte) will host The Wizard of Oz from Tuesday, December 18th to Thursday, December 20th for three shows starting at 7 p.m.
