Follow the yellow brick road to Fond du Lac High School
and the wonderful world of Oz as they present the classic musical “Wizard of Oz.” Performance dates are November 4-6, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. and November 7, 2021, at 1:00 p.m in the Fond du Lac High School Performing Arts Center.
This delightful stage adaptation of L. Frank Baum's beloved tale features the iconic musical score from the MGM film. The timeless tale, in which young Dorothy Gale travels from Kansas over the rainbow to the magical Land of Oz, continues to thrill audiences worldwide.
The production will follow the Royal Shakespeare Company’s (RSC) version and will include the songs: Over The Rainbow, Munchkinland (Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead), If I Only Had A Brain/A Heart/The Nerve, We're Off To See The Wizard, The Jitterbug, The Merry Old Land of Oz, Poppies, and If I Were King Of The Forest. This RSC version is a faithful adaptation of the film. It recreates the dialogue and structure of the MGM classic nearly scene for scene, though it is adapted for live stage performance.
