The Wizard of OzReturn

Playwright John Kane Composer Harold Arlen Lyricist E.Y. Harburg Source Author L. Frank Baum Source Title The Wizard of Oz Producer Berkeley Playhouse  [Website] Description Brimming with classic songs and Technicolor spirit, The Wizard of Oz blows its way into the Julia Morgan Theater for an all-new production of this American classic.

When a storm hits her family farm in Kansas, young Dorothy and her dog Toto are swept over the rainbow to a magical land where scarecrows talk, tin men sing, lions (barely) roar, and where one very wicked witch rules the skies.

One of the most treasured stories of the 20th century, filled with the songs that made it an instant classic, this musical journey of finding home—and yourself—is this holiday season’s must-see family event!
