OUTSTANDING

I do not have a great experience in live performances, only can say that after 10 min the play started I was transported to the story, I was absolutely surprised about the songs and the different twist to original story. Went with my 6 years old , who has ADD and he was engaged the whole time, we loved! Is a must!

AWESOME - WENT TWICE

I went with my best friend and Goddaughter and liked it SOOO much that I managed to get second row tickets for my 8 years old grandson and myself. We LOVED it! You must go if you get the opportunity. "Things" fade away but experiences bind us together. Go!

STAGE ADDS INTERESTING PERSPECTIVE FOR WIZARD MOVIE WATCHERS

The Wizard of Oz is a very enjoyable rendition of the ago-old story of Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tinman, Cowardly Lion and the rest. There are a few new songs to become acquainted with. The acting was excellent across the board. Toto received the largest applause by far. We all wondered how he could always come to the right place, on or off stage, every single time. Dorothy's voice and energy are excellent. The special effects to show the tornadoes,movement of the house where Dorothy lived, and the perceived distance between Oz and Kansas were very well done. The play seemed to fascinate both children and adults.

VERY IMPRESSED!

Saw the evening performance on May 10th. I have seen many plays, tons of versions of OZ movies, I've seen Wicked twice and the 2 people with me have read lots of the OZ books. The play was great. Some small changes from the movie but mostly good changes and fun and funny. Some of the "personality added" I did not care for as much- Glenda and the Lion and Scare Crow. But the other people with me loved the Scare Crow. Over all very quality show and very very enjoyable!!!

ENJOYED THE NIGHT OUT WITH THE FAMILY

A gorgeous night with perfect weather outside for the Starlight helped make this a very enjoyable evening out with the family. The new songs were great but not as good as hearing the originals. Danielle Wade was perfect in the role of Dorothy with a beautiful voice and tone. Scarecrow was hamming it up and very funny and Tin man seemed to be channeling the movie but Lion was a bit of a dud compared to the movie. Costumes, lighting and set were all excellent and I loved the projection effects. Sound was a bit off with some lines being soft to rock concert loud at points and OZ had way too much echo effect it was difficult to understand him. My wife and I agreed the casting for Auntie Em was not a good choice but the rest of the cast were very good and entertaining. It was a bit too long as the ending seemed padded and the kids lost interest but the rest of the show the kids seemed enthralled. We left that night feeling happy we had seen the show and the kids really had fun.
