The Wizard of Oz Opens at CenterStage

Gather the family and get ready to experience the charismatic characters and unforgettable songs in The Wizard of Oz when it comes to CenterStage March 11-28. As John Leffert continues celebrating his 10th year with the company, he chose to bring back this family favorite, which has the distinction of being CenterStage’s biggest show to date, selling out each show.

Dorothy Gale, like so many girls her age, dreams of what lies over the rainbow. When a twister touches down on her farmhouse in Kansas, she is swept from her colorless world to the magical, beautiful and sometimes dangerous land of Oz. Join Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman, Cowardly Lion, and yes, Toto too, as they journey down the yellow brick road through the universe of your imagination. Discover for yourself, “There’s no place like home.”

Performances will be held on March 11, 13, 18, 20, 22, 25 and 27 at 7:30 p.m.; March 14 and 21 at 2 and 7 p.m.; and March 28 at 2 p.m.


You are also cordially invited to attend a tea party with Dorothy and her friends on Sunday, March 21, or Sunday, March 28, from noon-1 p.m., before the 2 p.m. matinee. Partygoers will spend time with the characters, build a fun Wizard of Oz craft, tour backstage and have their pictures taken with a character from the show. The cost to attend the tea party is $14, or $22 for the tea party and show package, which includes one ticket to the matinee performance. For reservations or more information, please call (502) 459-0660, ext. 0.
