‘Wizard of Oz’ plays at Music Circus

The timeless classic family musical, “The Wizard of Oz,” based on the 1939 film starring Judy Garland, kicks off the 2013 Music Circus season with an extended run at the Wells Fargo Pavilion from June 21 to 30.

Filled with favorite songs like “Over the Rainbow” and “We’re Off to See the Wizard,” fans of all ages will once again be delighted as they follow Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man, Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion on an enchanting adventure along the Yellow Brick Road to Oz. The Music Circus production will be the Royal Shakespeare Company version of the musical, which was first presented at the Barbican Centre in London in 1988 and is based closely on the classic film.

This brand new production of “The Wizard of Oz” will be the most elaborate production of the Music Circus season. It will feature flight sequences with the Wicked Witch and flying monkeys, choreographed by one of Broadway’s top flight choreographers, Paul Rubin. His work on Broadway includes “Wicked,” “Kiss Me, Kate,” “The Pirate Queen,” “Peter Pan” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”

The dog playing Toto will be trained by Bill Berloni, the leading trainer for Broadway shows.

With the book by L. Frank Baum and music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg, “The Wizard of Oz” has long been a musical enjoyed by the entire family. This will be the ninth Music Circus production of the show, with the first one in 1952 and most recent in 2004.

Music Circus is produced under the leadership of California Musical Theatre Artistic Director Glenn Casale and Executive Producer Scott Klier. Casale will be directing this production of  “The Wizard of Oz.” California Musical Theatre President and CEO is Richard Lewis.

Music Circus productions are presented at the Wells Fargo Pavilion, 1419 H St. in Sacramento. In the first week, performances are Friday, June 21 at 8 p.m., Saturday, June 22 at 2 and 8 p.m., and Sunday, June 23, at 2 and 7:30 p.m. In the second week of shows, evening performances are Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday at 7:30 p.m., and Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. Matinée performances are Thursday and Saturday at 2 p.m.
