THE WIZARD OF OZ will dazzle audiences at Hammons Hall during three performances April 16-17. THE WIZARD OF OZ, whether in book, movie, or live theater form, is a classic piece of American culture, and this production is faithful to the whimsy and charm of its predecessors.
Venus Zarris of the Chicago Stage Review, wrote, “This technicolor explosion of charm renders the film to the stage with all of the familiar characters, songs, scenes and a few extras for good measure.” Read more of her review…
Audiences will be swept away into the land of Oz as they sing along with and follow the troop down the yellow brick road. For choice seating during these stunning performances, call the box office today (417-836-7678).

Fun Fact: In the 1903 adaptation, Toto, Dorothy’s dog, is actually replaced by a cow named Imogene. Toto was most likely replaced by a cow because it was easier to fit an actor inside a cow costume than a dog costume—or even attempt to train a dog for the stage.
Fun Fact: This National tour of THE WIZARD OF OZ does feature Toto. Toto is played by Snickers, who is receiving his own rave reviews.
