The Wizard of Oz

April 21 - April 22

By American Midwest Ballet – 7 PM (Fri.) & 1 PM (Sat.) @ University of Dubuque Heritage Center

It’s The Wizard of Oz you know and love, except the characters are live on stage, in full color, and dance the whole time! Based on the book and classic 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz brings Frank Baum’s story to life while giving it a ballet twist. As Dorothy, Toto, and their three Ozian friends search for a brain, a heart, some nerve, and a path back to Kansas, they encounter munchkins, monkeys, and a witch. But while the Yellow Brick Road may be a familiar path, the clicking red shoes take a few unexpected steps. Choreographer Erin Alarcon blended roles for the company’s professional dancers with parts for young guest dancers from the Dubuque area, led by the Academy of Ballet.
