The greatest family musical of all time, The Wizard of Oz, is touching down at TPAC February 8-10! The show is a celebration of the 1939 MGM movie and will be presented with breathtaking special effects that will sweep audiences away from the moment the tornado twists its way into Kansas.
Featuring the classic songs as composed by Harold Arlen, including “Over the Rainbow”, “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” and “If I Only Had a Brain”, The Wizard of Oz will have the entire family captivated as they travel down the yellow brick road for an unforgettable day at the theater.
Katherine Walker Hill, a Crossville, TN native joins the cast as Aunt Em/Glinda in the production. Her favorite regional credits include “White Christmas”, “Singin’ In The Rain”, “The Drowsy Chaperone”, and “A Chorus Line”.
The team of Dean Sobon and Amy McCleary will take Dorothy, Toto, and their friends the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow “Over the Rainbow” to adventures in Munchkin Land, the Haunted Forest and the Emerald City.
Dean Sobon, who created previous national tours of “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers,” served as director for the production, with choreography by Amy McCleary, the director/choreographer of the national tour of “Memphis,” and choreographer of the national tour of “The Wedding Singer.”
Tickets go on sale on Friday, Nov. 9, at 10 a.m. at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040 and at the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville.
