The Wizard of Oz The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Dec. 30 2010

Directed and choreographed by Rachel Rockwell, this rollicking hour-long musical maintains the magical feel of the 1939 film about Dorothy Gale's adventures in the land of Oz while incorporating new choreography and one-liners. George Keating gives a lively performance as the bumbling Scarecrow, slip-sliding across the stage and standing up to the nasty Wicked Witch of the West. Audience members are encouraged to sing along to classic songs from the movie, and Keating leads a spirited postshow question and answer session. --Marissa Oberlander
