There truly is no place like home as the greatest family musical of all time, the wonderful Wizard Of Oz, twists its way into San Antonio. The entire family will be captivated as they travel down the Yellow Brick Road and beyond with Dorothy, Toto and their friends the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow in this lavish production, featuring breathtaking special effects, dazzling choreography and classic songs. See it live at Tobin Center next Tuesday, March 12th beginning at 7:30 p.m.!
“For nearly forty years this story has given faithful service to the Young in Heart; and Time has been powerless to put its kindly philosophy out of fashion. To those of you who have been faithful to it in return… and to the Young in Heart… we dedicate this picture.” When the dedication for the opening credits of the 1939 MGM classic The Wizard of Oz was written, no one could’ve imagined the lasting impact the movie would have on American culture, or how accurate the assertion that Time would be powerless to stop the story, was going to be.
The actual time it takes (just over one hundred minutes) to transport viewers from Kansas to the magical world of Oz and back again is relatively brief. But, as anyone who has viewed the movie knows, the story resonates much longer than that. Climatic lines such as, “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore,” and “Lions and tigers and bears! Oh, my!” will never be forgotten. Judy Garland’s performance of “Over the Rainbow” has been hummed for decades and once heard, is forever emblazoned on hearts and in minds. That is the phenomenon of The Wizard of Oz.
A spectacular celebration of the iconic film, The Wizard Of Oz musical will blow you away from the moment the tornado touches down and transports you to a dazzling Oz, complete with munchkins and flying monkeys. Don’t miss the chance to travel Over the Rainbow and experience this national treasure on stage! Tickets begin at $50 and may be purchased online at www.tobincenter.org.
