The Wizard of Oz


Savannah Stage Company takes this much-loved musical and creates a brave and imaginative interpretation like none other. This bold retelling puts Dorothy in the middle of an attic where she greets the band of characters that help her journey down a path that is filled with mishaps and detours. 

This is the script and score everyone knows and loves, but Savannah Stage Company surrounds the material with simplistic actor-driven sound effects, found objects that are molded into whimsical props, and brave storytelling that explores relationships in a deeper way, all with only 10 actors. 

By removing the curtain and simplifying the spectacle, SSC’s production of The Wizard of Oz is left with the courage to create, the brains to implement, and the heart to share. Follow Savannah Stage Company down the yellow brick road and experience Dorothy’s path as she finds out what really matters.
