"The Wizard of Oz"




See the classic movie come to life as a part of the annual Prescott Park Arts Festival in Portsmouth.

This magical production, based on the Royal Shakespeare Company's celebration of the 1939 MGM movie, is presented in partnership with the Seacoast Repertory Theatre and will prove to sweep audiences away, from the moment the tornado twists its way into Kansas.

Dorothy, Toto and their friends the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow are transported Over the Rainbow to adventures in Munchkin Land, the Haunted Forest, and the Emerald City. Featuring the classic songs "Over the Rainbow," "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" and "If I Only Had A Brain," along with the beloved characters, "The Wizard of Oz" will have the entire family captivated as they travel down the yellow brick road for an unforgettable evening in the Park.

Running each Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from June 24 through August 21.

Presented by The Common Man Restaurant Family.
