Patio Playhouse Plays in the Park presents The Wizard 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. This production is 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.

Includes the songs from the classic MGM film: “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),” “If I Were King Of The Forest,” and “The Merry Old Land of Oz.”
