Desert Opera Theatre is proud to announce its upcoming production of “The Wiz”, coming to the Lancaster High School Theater on June 17 – 26, 2011.
“The Wiz” is a fun and funky, updated version of the family favorite “The Wizard of Oz”. Set in the 1970’s, Dorothy is whisked away to Oz by a tornado where she meets all sorts of characters, including the Tinman, Scarecrow, Lion, and three witches. In her search for “The Wiz” she sets off on many adventures where she makes new friends and encounters others who want to keep her from going home. In the end, The Wiz and Glinda convince Dorothy to believe in herself to make her wishes come true.
