Santa Monica High Theatre Arts Presents The Wizard Of Oz Musical Starting Friday:

Frank Baum’s beloved classic The Wizard of Oz musical is being brought to life by two talented casts of Santa Monica High School theatre, choir, orchestra, band and dance students in seven performances at Barnum Hall this month.

Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District elementary students have also been cast as little munchkins for the shows.

Shows are March 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21 at 7 pm and March 14 and 21 at 2 pm. General tickets are $16 each and students are $10.

Tickets can be purchased in advance online at: www.samohitheatre.org, or at venue door prior to show times, while tickets are still available.

Fans of all ages will delight as Dorothy and friends “follow the yellow brick road” to find the Wizard who can help her return home. With flying monkeys, familiar songs, and whimsical munchkins, Samohi Theatre’s “The Wizard of Oz” is a treat for the whole family.

Students are involved in all aspects of the production, including: performing, choreography, crew, set building, costume design and publicity.

The Samohi Theatre is supported by Santa Monica Arts Parents Association – Theatre and through a grant from the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation.

The community is encouraged to come out and take a magical journey to Oz as Dorothy Gale and her little dog Toto get swept away by a tornado and land “somewhere over the rainbow.”

There she makes great new friends, the Scarecrow, The Tin Man and The Lion, and a mortal enemy, the Wicked Witch, as they navigate their way through Oz in an effort to help Dorothy get back home to Kansas.

Children are invited to attend the shows in Oz costumes and to pose for pictures with Toto and the iconic characters of Oz after the two Saturday matinees.

Santa Monica High School, Barnum Hall is located at 601 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405.
