Feb. 25 – Mar. 11, 2012; Opening Night: Saturday, Feb. 25 at 7:00 p.m.
Atlanta’s nationally acclaimed Alliance Theatre will present The Wizard of Oz February 22 through March 11, 2012 as part of its Theatre for Young Audiences series.
Introduce your children to the kind of magic only found in the Land of Oz. This 70-minute production features iconic songs like "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "Follow the Yellow Brick Road” from the movie score and is filled with characters who are like childhood friends one never tires of visiting. The Wizard of Oz reminds us that no matter what you’re searching for, you don’t have to look further than your own backyard.
While remaining true to the story and familiar characters, the Alliance’s version of The Wizard of Oz will uniquely incorporate an “American Folk Art” design concept. This seems a natural fit, since, for example, the Tin Man is composed of tin found-object items making him essentially a work of folk art. Casting also reflects the diversity of the Atlanta community in the same way folk art reflects the surroundings of each artist.
