The Wizard of Oz at the Detroit Opera House

Looking for a heart, some courage or a fun time with the family? Take a trip down the yellow brick road to see Dorothy, Toto and all their friends from Oz when The Wizard of Oz comes to the Detroit Opera House June 17-29, 2014.

The production team of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber brings the merry land of Oz to life with the appearance of classic characters and songs like "We're Off to See the Wizard" and "Over the Rainbow" from the original MGM screenplay, as well as new songs and surprises along the way.

Danielle Wade hits the stage as the ruby-slipper wielding heroine, Dorothy. Plus, Mike Jackson as Tin Man, Lee MacDougall as Lion, Jamie McKnight as Scarecrow and a rescue dog named Nigel as Toto.

Opening night is June 17 and doubles as a Kid's Night on Broadway. Families can receive one free kid's ticket with the purchase of one full-price adult ticket, and kids can participate in games, ice cream and arts and craft activities!

Show times are as follows:

  • Tuesdays-Fridays: 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturdays: 2 and 7:30 p.m.
  • Sundays: 1 and 6:30 p.m.

Note: There is an open captioned performance at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 22.
