A.C.T. presents 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 Toni Rembe Theater to experience The Wizard of Oz, you’ll connect with rekindled memories—as well as the spark of unexpected surprises and twists!
This season at A.C.T is all about returning home, and that makes The Wizard of Oz the perfect choice for you, your family, and your friends. See you down the (yellow brick) road.

ANNOUNCING SENSORY SUPPORT PERFORMANCE
June 18 at 2 p.m.
A.C.T. is proud to partner with Inclusive Arts to offer audience members a new level of sensory support for this production! We are thrilled to introduce Inclusive Arts’s innovative Sensory Cue Lights. These lights, positioned on either side of the stage in the orchestra section, use subtle visual cues to provide real-time alerts that prepare audience members for potential sensory triggers, including sudden loud sounds, bright or flashing lights, stage effects that produce a smell, or moments of violence. The Sensory Cue Lights were designed with inclusion in mind, to allow individuals with sensory sensitivities, anxiety, or a preference for predictability to fully enjoy the magic of theater while feeling safe and comfortable.
Please note: The performance and technical elements of The Wizard of Oz will not be altered in any way.
At this and at all performances, we also have sensory supports available at Coat Check on the lower level, including a variety of fidget toys, sunglasses, earplugs, noise-reducing headphones, and a limited number of weighted blankets.
