About This Show

A.C.T. will present the classic musical, The Wizard of Oz, from Tony Award-nominated director-choreographer Sam Pinkleton (Soft Power and Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) and Tony Award-winning designer David Zinn (Edward Albee’s Seascape at A.C.T). Do you remember the first time you saw L. Frank Baum’s classic tale come to life? The sweeping music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg, the beloved characters, and the enthralling journey of a young girl from a grayscale Kansas prairie to a world filled with color, danger, and magic. For decades this enchanting classic musical has been a part of some of the best moments of our lives. When you enter the Geary Theater to experience The Wizard of Oz, you’ll connect with rekindled memories—as well as the spark of unexpected surprises and twists!
