The Wizard of Oz

BTG’s extensive education program is now serving 11,000 school children and this year our well-loved community production is back! Relive the classic tale of four unlikely friends on the adventure of a lifetime. Join America’s original heroine Dorothy as she leads her friends the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow on a journey down the yellow brick road to the magical Emerald City. Set in Kansas during the 20th century, this brand new, reimagined musical adventure is full of world travelers, festive carnival’s and spectacular sideshows for families outside under the Big Tent on the grounds of Berkshire Theatre’s Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield. Featuring the classic songs, “Follow the Yellow Brick Road,” “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead,” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
