Ease on down the yellow-brick road with the Tony Awarding-winning Broadway hit musical, The Wiz, presented by the Education Department of the Norris Center for the Performing Arts. This contemporary, soulful adaptation of Frank Baums The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, captures all the magic of the beloved classic as Dorothy and Toto are whisked away to the enchanted wonderland of Oz, where they encounter the Scarecrow, Tinman and Cowardly Lion on their way to see the Wizard. The spectacular musical numbers, set to the beat of an infectious mixture of rock, gospel and soul, include such favorites as Ease on Down the Road, and Brand New Day. The electrifying dance numbers, hip and humorous dialogue and dazzling sets make this an experience of the land of Oz unlike anything youve seen before. The Wiz won seven Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score, and was adapted into a popular movie featuring Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and Richard Pryor. The production is student cast with actors up to age 18.
The show runs July 19-28 with Friday & Saturday evening performances at 7:30pm and Saturday and Sunday matinee performances at 2:00pm. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students. Call (310) 544-0403 for more information.
