Stageworks Theatre presents its final show of the 2016-2017 season, The Wizard of Oz,by L. Frank Baum, music and lyrics Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg. Directed by Adam Delka, the show will run July 28 - August 13, 2017 at The Berry Center.
Dorothy, feeling desperately misunderstood by everyone and threatened by a "witchy" neighbor, tries to solve her problems by running away. Instead, she's swept away by a tornado to a scary yet wonderful place where, accompanied by three trusted friends, she discovers that there's no place like home.
This beloved musical follows the story you remember from the 1939 film starring Judy Garland but with the excitement one can only experience through live theatre. Don't miss your chance to see it come alive on stage at the wonderful Berry Center in Cypress!
"I can't wait to open. The Munchkinland set is really coming to life. Every hand in the theatre is painting a piece of something and it's going to be the most colorful thing you've seen. It's beautiful. Throw in the flying Dorothy, Glinda, Wicked Witch and Ms. Gulch in there and it's a huge spectacle," said Delka.
