The musical was inspired by By L. Frank Baum’s novel, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.” Music and lyrics are by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg with background music by Herbert Stothart. Dance and vocal arrangements are by Peter Howard and orchestration is by Larry Wilcox. Originally adapted by John Kane for the Royal Shakespeare Company. The motion picture is owned by Turner Entertainment Co. and distributed in all media by Warner Bros.
Considering that my girls and I are kind of musical junkies – we are excited that this will be the first (and certainly not last) musical to christen the stage of the new performing arts center.
