There’s no place like home and there truly is no place like the Marion Palace Theatre!
The 2017-18 season kicks off with the greatest family musical of all time, THE WIZARD OF OZ.
This greatest family musical of all time will wind its way down the Yellow Brick Road and onto the Palace stage with a large cast of #MarionMade! talent. Under the expert direction of Clare Cooke, all the iconic 1939 MGM film characters come to life. Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Dorothy and her little dog Toto will lead the audience on a captivating journey over the rainbow and through Oz where we meet a wizard, witches, and winged monkeys.
This lavish production, featuring breathtaking special effects, stunning choreography, and an Oscar-winning score will blow you away from the instant the Kansas twister touches down and transports the audience to the magical world of Oz.
So, click your heels three times and embark on an unforgettable experience at the Palace and discover a fantastic musical treat for the whole family. Adding to the fun will be a special Munchkin Luncheon before the show on Sunday, July 16 (separate ticket required).
