ABOUT THE SHOW: Generations of families are familiar with the cherished MGM classic, The Wizard of Oz, and now, audiences can see it live on stage. Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber reimagines the beloved film, but enhances it with computer-generated imagery and a few songs from iconic characters who had nothing but dialogue in the film. The show features all the beloved songs from the Oscar-winning movie, as well as a few new numbers by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

totoThe North American tour of Wizard of Oz originated in Canada and has traveled from coast to coast. When the show makes a stop at Walton Arts Center, one of its principal cast members will be coming back to his home state. Dorothy’s dog, Toto, is portrayed by native Arkansas pup, Nigel — a six-year-old Cairn terrier, the same breed as the original Toto (whose name was Terry) in the 1939 film.

Nigel was rescued from the Northeast Arkansas Human Society in Jonesboro by his guardian/trainer, William Berloni, in 2008. Berloni has trained over 40 animal performers for 36 years, including the original Sandy in “Annie” and Bruiser in the stage version of “Legally Blonde.”

Additionally, this production stars Danielle Wade as Dorothy, who was chosen by the Canadian public through the reality show Over the Rainbow. This energetic production features exciting special effects, extravagant sets and intricate costumes. Content is suitable for children—all ages can truly enjoy this production.

  41. I didn’t always like this movie, yes, the monkeys and the witch were pretty scary, but then my kids and I found it one day on Turner Classic Movies and they both enjoyed it and so did I, realizing that it is not as scary as I remembered. I will send an email and post on Facebook too.

  57. My favorite scene is when Dorothy meets the Scarecrow. I just have a tender spot in my heart for him and he’s endearing to me. I have a 9 month old daughter so I’m excited to share this movie with her and buy her some ruby slippers! Hoping to win!!!

    And the munchkins
    The movie was one of my favorites as a kid
