The Wizard of Oz comes to North Platte

By  | 

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - This weekend folks can follow the brick roads to the Fox Theater and see the wonderful Wizard of Oz. The production will be taking us on a journey to the Emerald City! The cast has spent weeks getting prepared for an awesome production and invite everyone to come witness the fun.

It's a story of finding friends in unusual places and the journey of self-discovery. But the beloved story does come with some unexpected twists this year.

Wizard of Oz's director Scot Carlson said, "It's been a great show, it's a show that we all know and love but this one has a little bit of a twist on it. There's actually two versions of this show. One is based off the movie, one is based more off the book and we're doing the one that's based more off the book."

Wizard of Oz at the North Platte Community Playhouse will be shown this weekend and next weekend. Friday and Saturday performances are at 8:00 p.m. & Sunday Matinee showings are at 2:00 p.m. General Admission - $15.00; Ages 16 and under - $8.00; Students with I.D. - $8.00.
