Arts Council Bringing Oz to Farmington
Dorothy still explores Oz, Glenda helps guide her and her friends through their adventures, and the Wicked Witch of the West attempts to thwart them all in an American Family Theater production of “Wizard of Oz.”
The production will feature all new songs, to present an original telling of the classic American story. Mineral Area Council on the Arts will sponsor the performance at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 2, at Centene Center in Farmington. Family-friendly pricing is $1 for children 12 and younger, $3 for those 13 and older. Tickets are available at the Centene Box Office, (573) 756-0900.
Roxanne Cummings, MACOA director, said the arts council does its best to bring as many entertainment opportunities as it can to area patrons.
"Mineral Area Council on the Arts wants to give every family the chance to experience live professional theater, with vibrant sets and great new songs, in a top notch theater like Centene Center,” she said. “That's why we've priced the tickets at the absolute minimum."
