Valley Youth Theatre’s (VYT) dazzling production of The Wizard of Oz opens Center Stage at the Herberger Theater on June 9, 2017 with 60 talented young actors from around the Valley, 125 brilliantly colorful costumes, and the beautiful New York City Madison Square Garden set.
The musical’s classic songs are brought to life by a live orchestra that accompanies Dorothy and her little dog Toto as they are swept away, by a huge tornado, from her small farm in Kansas, to the magical land of OZ where she meets new and exciting friends, and a few enemies.
When her house accidently lands on the Wicked Witch of the East, everyone is exuberant, except the Wicked Witch of the West who seeks revenge for the death of her sister and wants her ruby slippers.
Things in Oz are strange and beautiful, but Dorothy just wants to go home to Kansas. To do this, she must find the Wizard.
