White Horse Theatre Company presents an event for children from ages 5 to 75 - The Wiz, based on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, featuring book by William F. Brown, with music and lyrics by Charlie Smalls. This production takes audiences into a world of rhythm, imagination, adventure and self-discovery as WHTC adds its special brand of storytelling to this classic American tale.
The story is the one we all know by heart. Dorothy is blown by a tornado into Munchkinland and travels through Oz to meet the Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the Cowardly Lion. They all go off to see the Wiz and to ask him to fulfill their various wishes. But in The Wiz (unlike The Wizard of Oz), home is not a geographical place, but a state of being comfortable in your own skin and with who you are.
Craig Joseph directs, with music direction by Ryan Brewster and choreography by Baron Clay, all WHTC company members.
