Andrew Lloyd Webber's new production of The Wizard of Oz is an enchanting adaptation of the all-time classic, totally reconceived for the stage by the award-winning creative team that recently delighted Toronto audiences of all ages with the revival of The Sound of Music.
Developed from the ever popular MGM screenplay, this new production contains all the beloved songs from the Oscar®-winning movie score, all the favourite characters and iconic moments, plus a few surprises along the way, including new songs by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Mirvish Productions launches a series of acclaimed new productions from our own community, local productions of award-winning international new plays and original productions of new works from the world festival circuits.
The inaugural series is composed of TERMINUS from Outside the March theatre company, Anthony Rapp's Edinburgh Fringe Festival hit WITHOUT YOU, the multi-award-winning CLYBOURNE PARK from Studio 180 Theatre, and Mary Walsh's new show DANCING WITH RAGE.
Explains David Mirvish: "The Toronto theatre community is one of the most vibrant in the world. The wealth and breadth of talent here is astonishing. For a long time, we have been looking at ways to celebrate this community and to bring its work to a larger audience. That's why we have started the Off-Mirvish Series.
"The shows in our first season all share a commitment to artistic excellence, and an exploration of language, action and ideas that will be challenging, innovative and provocative. But they are also highly entertaining.
"The series is an amazing bargain. The four-show package is $99; even the top price is only $199. But we are only allowing a limited number of packages to be sold. At these bargain prices we can't afford to fill all seats at these rates. So, as they say: DON'T MISS OUT! HURRY!"
