In The Wizard of Oz, little Dorothy of Kansas, like so many girls her age, dreams of what lies over the rainbow. One day a twister hits her farm and carries her away over the rainbow to another world. Audience members will join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, the Cowardly Lion, and Toto as they travel the universe of Dorothy's imagination.
This musical includes the songs “Over the Rainbow”, “Munchkinland (Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead)”, “If I Only Had A Brain, If I Only Had A Heart, If I Only Had The Nerve” and “We're Off To See The Wizard (Follow The Yellow Brick Road)”.
Tickets for the Wizard of Oz will be available beginning in February at the Novi Parks Box Office and at cityofnovi.org. For more information, please contact the Novi Parks Office at (248)347-0400.
