After its run at the Ed Mirvish theatre in Toronto this December, The Wizard of Oz will take its entire cast across Canada and into the United States, hitting cities such as Chicago and Los Angeles.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new production of The Wizard of Oz is an adaptation of the all-time classic, totally reconceived for the stage by the award-winning creative team of the revival of The Sound of Music.
Developed from the ever popular MGM screenplay, this new production contains all the songs from the Oscar-winning movie score, all the favourite characters and iconic moments, plus a few surprises along the way, including new songs by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
