Young Artists of America presents the Wizard of oz in COncert


After a tornado whisks away a young Kansas farm girl, Dorothy, to the magical land of OZ, she starts her quest to find the mighty Wizard of Oz who has the power to send her home. Along the way she meets a Scarecrow, a Tin Woodsman and a Cowardly Lion who help her on her journey, as well as a couple of witches and some munchkins!

The Wizard of Oz in Concert is based on the 1900 novel by L. Frank Baum, with music and lyrics from the 1939 MGM motion picture score by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg.


Join Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion as they follow the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City to meet the great OZ in this timeless tale.
