The Wizard of Oz - 2013 - US Tour

Andrew Lloyd Webber's reworked stage musical The Wizard of Oz is set to launch a North American tour in fall of 2013. 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.

I got to see Broadway shows starting when I was only around 4-years-old. I loved the thrill and excitement of seeing an actor live on stage, singing and performing their heart out. I knew from then on that I wanted to be like them, that I wanted to be on Broadway and perform on a great, big stage, like so many of us do. It’s such a light-hearted dream, a dream that’s gotten me through some hardships and kept me inspired. But as the years went by, and it was eventually time to decide where I was going to go to college, my dream wasn’t seeming so light-hearted anymore. Instead, it felt like pressure.
