The Wizard of Oz
The Wizard of Oz
Beloved classic, “The Wizard of Oz” comes to life this winter at Wheelock Family Theatre!
Based on the beloved novel and Classic Motion Picture, The Wizard of Oz follows the story of a young girl, Dorothy, as she finds the true meaning of “home.” She and her best sidekick, Toto (a charming, scruffy little dog), find themselves in the magical land of Oz and encounter characters of splendor and tasks of the highest magnitude. Audiences fall for Dorothy and her trusted companions as they battle their way to their highest desires — knowledge, love, courage and home.
