Next week the U.S. Bank Broadway in Portland series is presenting the North American tour of the new stage adaptation of The Wizard of Oz! It is playing at the Keller Auditorium on March 8th - 13th.
I’m excited to see this production of one of the most classic stories around. This production is developed from the popular MGM screenplay and shares everyone’s favorite characters including the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, Dorothy, and Toto. We will follow along with the iconic moments we love as they journey through the magical Land of Oz to meet the Wizard, plus there will be a few new surprises along the way, including new songs from Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

 You know that I fell in love with Broadway productions after seeing my first performance last year, and I’m looking forward to experiencing The Wizard of Oz live for the first time!
