THE WIZARD OF OZ Skips Onto The Renaissance Center Stage

THE WIZARD OF OZ Skips Onto The Renaissance Center Stage

The Renaissance Players announce their production of The Wizard of Oz opening June 21, 2019. Directed by Marilyn Fair, this family favorite features the well-known songs and scenes from the classic movie.

After a tornado hits her home, Dorothy is carried away to Munchkinland where she meets the Munchkins, Glinda, and the Wicked Witch of the West! After vowing vengeance against Dorothy, the Witch leaves, and Glinda tells Dorothy to follow the yellow brick road to see the Wizard since he would be the only one that could get her back to Kansas. Along the way, Dorothy meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion. She persuades them all to accompany her to the Emerald City so they can get a brain, a heart, and courage from the Great and Powerful Oz. The Wizard agrees to help, but only if the fabulous four can defeat the Wicked Witch!

Director Marilyn Fair says, "What a fantastic and exciting experience this has been from the very moment I first met this dynamic and talented production team! Each of us has distinct and specific memories of the beloved MGM classic movie, and we each seem very determined to make this production a fabulous and memorable experience for our audience. There will be lots of dancing to help move us to new locations, beautifully clever costumes tying the Oz characters to their Kansas counterparts, and a multi-purpose set that has been designed to transform in front of the viewers eyes. It will be a fun theatrical experience for all ages!"

Performances are June 21, 22, 28, & 29 at 7:00 pm, and June 23 & 30 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are available at or by calling the box office at 615-593-5520.
