It’s got rock. It’s got gospel. It’s got soul. And oh my, the dancing! In a dream collaboration, Dallas Theater Center and Dallas Black Dance Theatre, the city’s oldest continuously operating dance company, fill the Wyly Theatre with dancing, singing and laughter for the dazzling musical that won seven Tony Awards when it opened on Broadway in 1975.
Featuring Brierley Resident Acting Company members Liz Mikel and Hassan El-Amin, local favorite Denise Lee and actors fresh from Broadway, this eye-popping, high-energy family hit starts with a tornado and keeps lifting from there, as Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion “Ease on Down the Road” and ultimately learn there’s no place like home.
Tickets are on sale now for the Friday, July 8 – Sunday, August 7 performances.Wyly Theatre ATT Performing Arts Center 2400 Flora Street
