Coming to Austin, Texas, The Long Center presents The Wizard of Oz, the Musical! This production of The Wizard of Oz is a captivating adaptation of the classic, completely reconceived for the stage. You will have several opportunities to catch this show, as it is one you will not want to miss! From Friday, May 27th through Sunday, May 29th, you can choose between one of the five shows that is offered at The Long Center.
Developed from its popular screenplay, this production contains the songs from the movie score, with all the favorite characters and iconic moments. Also enjoy a few surprises along the way—including new songs by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Arlene Phillips states, “The reason Andrew added new songs was that three of the main characters in the film actually didn’t have songs.” For the show to be a full scale musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Director Jeremy Sams made the decision to add more music through the show. The additional songs better clarify the characters.
With a creative team from London and Toronto featuring Jeremy Sams (direction), Robert Jones (set and costume design), Hugh Vanstone (lighting design), Mick Potter (sound design), David Cullen (orchestrations) Arlene Phillips (choreography), Jon Driscoll & Daniel Brodie (video/projection design), and Graham Hurman (musical supervision), the production of The Wizard of Oz is one you will not want to miss!
Wait no longer to join Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, Dorothy and her dog Toto through their journey through the magical land of Oz to meet the Wizard and acquire what their hearts desire. Watch out for the Wicked Witch of the West as you rediscover the story of Oz in this fantastic musical treat for the whole family.
