Centenary Stage's Holiday Musical THE WIZARD OF OZ Runs 11/23-12/9
Audiences can begin the holiday season with a family classic at the Sitnik Theatre in the David and Carol Lackland Center starting Thanksgiving weekend. The Wizard of Oz is a musical tradition following the story of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, the Lion and Toto, too. These beloved characters visit Hackettstown on their way to the Emerald City, as CSC presents the Royal Shakespeare Company’S adaptation by Frank Gabrielson and John Kane, with Music and Lyrics from the MGM motion picture score by Harold Arlen and E.Y.
