It’s Wizard of Oz Time!

Are you off to see the wizard? You know…The Wonderful Wizard of Oz! This timeless, classic tale of finding one’s home, friends, and self when seemingly lost will be performed this coming week Thursday, July 13, Friday, July 14, next Saturday, July 15, and Sunday, July 16.

Follow Dorothy with her famous dog, Toto, as she wishes for a more exciting life and suddenly finds herself in a very different world filled with yellow bricked roads, munchkins, monkeys, and witches. On this journey, Dorothy gathers friends: The Tin Man, The Lion, and The Scarecrow who each are in need of something in their lives, too. Together they brave many adventures which bring them all back to where they really want to be: home.

The Wizard of Oz’s Thursday, Friday, and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 pm. The Sunday performance begins at 3 pm. Be sure to purchase your tickets ahead of time to ensure seating for this very popular musical. Tickets are available at the Soo Theatre Project office on Ashmun Street.

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to hear “Over the Rainbow” and “We’re Off To See The Wizard.” See Dorothy’s red ruby slippers! Watch as The Tin Man gets a heart, The Lion receives courage, and The Scarecrow obtains a brain. Come and experience the magic of The Wizard of Oz live on stage by an 88-member group of tremendously talented performers here on a historic stage in the heartbeat of Sault Sainte Marie’s downtown. Make a night of it with dining at a local restaurant and walking to the theatre. Enjoy what your downtown has to offer!
