Most people have heard of the Wizard of Oz. From now until December 30th, the Pasadena Civic Auditorium will be showing The Wonderful Winter of Oz. This is a holiday version of the classic tale made immortal by Judy Garland. This time, however, the story told in the traditional British Family Pinto style. In this version, on Christmas Eve, Dorothy gets swept away by a blizzard to Oz. This version is a musical with songs by Journey to Wham!. An added perk to this production is that Kermit the Frog will be portraying The Wizard of Oz!
There is a wide range of prices for tickets that start at $42. There is also a golden ticket opportunity that offers kids the opportunity to get on stage during the production. Each golden ticket does require an admission ticket. Tickets for The Wonderful Winter of Oz can be purchased here.
