Performances will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1 and Saturday, Nov. 2 in the Riverview Auditorium. A matinee will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3.

The musical is based on the movie classic by the same name, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. The story follows a young girl named Dorothy who finds herself in a land called Oz, where she meets Scarecrow, Tin Man and the cowardly Lion. Her efforts to get home lead to encounters with the Wicked Witch of the West and eventually the Wizard himself.

The show runs for about an hour, with one 10-minute intermission, making it a great adventure for even the youngest audience members.
