Synetic's OZ Has Been Moved To Georgetown

Synetic's OZ has moved to a new location: Devine Theater At Georgetown University July 11 Through August 12. The location is changing because the performance space at Synetic Theater (1800 S. Bell St.) is temporarily unavailable due to excessive water damage from a sprinkler system/pipe malfunction. The resulting damage has forced the team to move its upcoming production of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to the Devine Theater located in the Davis Performing Arts Center on the Georgetown University campus.

Synetic Theater presents a brand new adaptation of one of the most important cultural texts of the twentieth century, L. Frank Baum's American masterpiece The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Producing Director Paata Tsikurishvili, Director Ryan Sellers and Choreographer Tori Bertocci have created an environmental and spectacular adventure where verbal and nonverbal communication embrace each other in this innovative and heartfelt story of community, perseverance, and magic. Join Dorothy and friends as they embark on their journey down the Yellow Brick Road and see how Synetic brings to life Baum's characters in a way only Synetic can. This adaptation of Baum's beloved children and adults most beloved tales is the premier production in Synetic Theater's New Voice Series.

Tickets: $40 weekday (Wednesday and Thursday), $45 weekend (Friday-Sunday). Student/Child $20.
