The Wizard of Oz is one of the most popular musicals of all time. Click your heels together and join Dorothy and her dog Toto as they are swept away ‘over the rainbow’ to the magical world of Oz to meet the Wizard and obtain their heart’s desires. Aided by a Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion, Dorothy battles the Wicked Witch of the West and her winged monkeys in order to get home, whilst keeping hold of her Ruby Slippers.
Crane River Theater is excited to return to the Cope Amphitheater in Yanney Heritage Park for our production of The Wizard of Oz. It is just one portion of Kearney’s newest public park with a thirteen acre lake, formal gardens, water park and observation tower. The amphitheater features a large stage and available seating for two thousand people, making it the perfect location to bring the rich tradition of open air, outdoor family theater to Central Nebraska.
