The Wiz is a joyous modern retelling of L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s story The Wizard of Oz reflecting contemporary culture. After Dorothy gets swept up in a tornado, she finds herself in the fantastical world of Oz.

Ultimately, Dorothy finds that, if you believe with all your heart, you can always find your way home. With an infectious soul score, dynamic numbers, and endearing cast of characters, The Wiz is a joyous explosion of music, dance, magic, and heart to delight audience members of all ages.
