THE WIZ

Dates: September 30, 2017

Featuring a lively mixture of rock, gospel and soul, THE WIZ is a Tony Award-winning show that's a musical twist on the tale of Dorothy's journey to the Land of Oz. The storyline and characters are largely faithful to the 1939 movie version of L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, but the interpretation makes for a spectacular show. A tornado, played by a colorful collection of dancers, sweeps up Dorothy's farmhouse and carries her to the strange and mystical Land of Oz. As she journeys down the Yellow Brick Road to see the Wiz in Emerald City, Dorothy encounters a hip Scarecrow who wants to join her because he has a feeling he isn't going anywhere; an uptight Tin Man who needs Dorothy's help to hang loose again, and a cowardly Lion who has lost faith in the psychiatric help he's been getting from an owl. Together they “Ease on Down the Road,” undoubtedly the best known of the many memorable musical numbers in THE WIZ.
