The Wizard of Oz, a stage musical based on L. Frank Baum’s children's novel (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz) from 1900 is showing at the Fox Theatre!
The musical features an impressive ensemble of artists who bring to life the captivating story of Dorothy (a farm girl) and her beloved dog (Toto) who, after being swept up in a tornado, find themselves in the land of Oz, a place full of all kinds of magical creatures, from witches to munchkins. There is one man (the fabled Wizard of Oz who lives in Emerald City) who may be able to help Dorothy get back home to Kansas so she sets off along the Yellow Brick Road to find him. Along the way, she makes 3 friends (the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion) and this ragtag band of misfits must work together to not just reach their destination, but to also thwart the evil plans of the Wicked Witch of the West. The novel was made famous by the 1939 film (The Wizard of Oz) starring Judy Garland and this musical features all the movies’ classic songs such as Over the Rainbow, We're Off To See The Wizard, and many more!
