The greatest family musical of all time, THE WIZARD OF OZ, is touching down in Everett as Global Spectrum brings this national treasure to the Comcast Arena at Everett on December 3, 2011.
This magical production, based on the Royal Shakespeare Company’s celebration of the 1939 MGM movie, is presented with breathtaking special effects that will sweep audiences away, from the moment the tornado twists its way into Kansas.
Dorothy, Toto and their friends the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow are transported “Over the Rainbow” to adventures in Munchkin Land, the Haunted Forest and the Emerald City. Local children will be performing the roles of “munchkins.” Singing timeless classics such as “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead,” the children help bring this beloved classic to the stage of their hometown as part of their continuing performing arts education.
Featuring the classic songs, as composed by Harold Arlen, “Over the Rainbow,” “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” and “If I Only Had A Brain,” along with the beloved characters, THE WIZARD OF OZ will have the entire family captivated as they travel down the yellow brick road for an unforgettable evening at the theater.
