Follow the yellow brick road in this delightful stage adaptation of L. Frank Baum's beloved tale, featuring the iconic musical score from the MGM film. The timeless tale, in which young Dorothy Gale travels from Kansas over the rainbow to the magical Land of Oz, continues to thrill audiences worldwide. This version recreates the dialogue and structure of the MGM classic nearly scene for scene, though it is adapted for live stage performance. The MGM film The Wizard of Oz, based on L. Frank Baum's 1900 novel, premiered at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on August 15, 1939. This stage adaptation was first presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Barbican Centre in London in 1987 and played here at Curtain Call in 2005, 2009 and 2014.
