There’s no place like the Wharton Center to see a production of the Wizard of Oz, and there’s no cast like the Royal Winnipeg Ballet to bring L. Frank Baum’s classic story to life.

The dazzling retelling of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion’s journey down the yellow brick road to Emerald City comes to the Cobb Great Hall in the Wharton Center for the Performing Arts Wednesday, March 25, at 7:30 p.m.

The ballet will incorporate the visual elements like Dorothy’s ruby red slippers and flying effects that will amaze the whole family. In fact, the production’s creative team spent over 7,000 hours building costumes and countless hours on the 20 puppets featured in the show.

Magical projection technology will be used to mesmerize the audience and display a bigger-than-life production that will tie together the classic book and the movie we all know and love.

The Royal Winnipeg Ballet was formed in 1939 and holds the double distinction of being Canada’s premiere ballet company and the longest continuously operating ballet company in North America.

Story lines and visual elements from the classic motion picture were provided by Warner Brothers Theatre Ventures.

Tickets are available now at whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Insurance ticket office or by calling 1-800-Wharton.
