About the Show:

The Royal Shakespeare Company version is a more faithful adaptation of the film. A more technically complex production, it recreates the dialogue and structure of the MGM classic nearly scene for scene, though it is adapted for live stage performance. Dorothy Gale, a young girl living on a Kansas farm with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, dreams of escaping her mundane life. The family’s mean neighbor, Miss Gulch, threatens to impound Dorothy’s cherished dog, Toto, so Dorothy and Toto run away. They meet up with kindly Professor Marvel, who subtly convinces Dorothy to return home. Suddenly a cyclone hits, and Dorothy and Toto, seeking shelter in the house, are transported to the Land of Oz.

THE WIZARD OF OZ opens October 5th and runs to the 28th, with an opening Friday night performance at 7:30 PM. All other performances are Saturdays and Sundays at 4:00 p.m. The Growing Stage is a professional member of the Association of Actor’s Equity. There will be four roles available for AEA artists.
