WE’RE OFF TO SEE THE WIZARD…IN AN ALL-NEW WCT PRODUCTION

Click your heels together and follow Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tinman, and the Cowardly Lion down the Yellow Brick Road through the magical land of Oz. Set off on their journey with help from the Munchkins and Glinda the Good, Dorothy and friends will find brains, heart, courage and more on this magical journey—just watch out for the Wicked Witch of the West and her winged monkeys!

From bluegrass-inspired Kansas to electric green Oz, this spectacular original WCT production is the story you know and love with a few tornado twists. Bring the family together to experience the ultimate story of coming home—because there truly is no place like it

“A classic musical celebration of color and spectacle.”
