The Wiz

October 23 - November 4, 2018

Book by William F. Brown

Music and Lyrics by Charlie Smalls

From the story "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum

We invite you to experience a super-soul, energetic Tony Award®-winner for Best Musical – The Wiz! A hip re-telling of L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, The Wiz is a jubilant tale of friendship and adventure.

With music and lyrics by Charlie Smalls, and book by William F. Brown, the original production won seven Tony Awards® when it opened on Broadway in 1975 including Best Musical. The Wiz resonates with young and old audiences alike, and has had numerous successful revivals and a recent live, television production on NBC.

The Wiz tells the story of thirteen-year-old Dorothy, who lives with her Aunt Em, Uncle Henry, and her dog, Toto. After a cyclone hits her house, Dorothy is transported to the magical land of Oz where she meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Lion who help her on her journey to defeat the wicked Evillene, and find her way home.

Ease on down the road with Dorothy and her friends to find a world full of love, like yours, like mine – like home!
