The Wiz presents a soulful retelling of L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz created by Charlie Smalls (music, lyrics) and William F. Brown (book). The Wiz employs modern black dance and music styles to tell the classic story of Dorothy, a farm girl from Kansas, who is transported to a fantastical world of Munchkins, flying monkeys, and witches. As she travels along the yellow brick road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard of Oz in hopes of returning home, she befriends the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion, each of whom also seeks help from the Wizard.  This winter, join Hoof ‘n’ Horn in Sheafer Lab Theater to discover inner strength, the meaning of true friendship, and the value of home alongside the colorful characters of The Wiz and participate in a one-of-a-kind celebration of black culture. Please note: The February 9th performance is a Sensory Friendly Performance.
