Follow the yellow brick road! In this rare concert presentation, the Cape Symphony partners with Cotuit Center for the Arts to perform the original lush Harold Arlen score and the script of “The Wizard of Oz.”

Actors will perform the dialogue and sing the songs from the 1939 movie, on stage with the orchestra. Our production is inspired by the 1995 television presentation, "The Wizard of Oz in Concert," starring singer Jewel as Dorothy, Jackson Browne as the Scarecrow, Roger Daltrey as the Tin Man, and Nathan Lane as the Cowardly Lion. You can watch a video of the original TNT broadcast on YouTube and read about it on Wikipedia. Our version will be much more action-packed, and unlike those big stars, our outstanding actors will not be reading from scripts!

The familiar songs like “Over the Rainbow,” “We’re Off to See the Wizard” and “If I Only Had a Brain” will transport you to the Land of Oz, where you meet up with old friends Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and more, all played by some of the Cape's best actors. Fun for ages six and up! Don't forget about our student discount. We also have a special offer for the Saturday, February 9 performances at 3:00 PM & 7:30 PM: $20 tickets for guests under 50.
