Up Next at Birdsboro Theater: ‘The Wizard of Oz’

BIRDSBORO PA – Tickets are being sold online now for January stagings of “The Wizard of Oz,” the latest presentation by the 1st Street Players during their 2021-2022 season at the Birdsboro Community Theater, 301 E. First St. Artistic Director Andrea Hart thinks audiences will consider the production “charming.”

The well-known story: “After a tornado transports Dorothy Gale and her dog Toto into a magical and mysterious land of munchkins, witches, flying monkeys, and enchanted trees, she must follow the yellow brick road to find the Wizard and her way back home. Along the way, she meets a group of unlikely friends – a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, and a Lion.”

“Based on L. Frank Baum’s beloved novel and the 1939 film, “The Wizard of Oz” is a delightful story about the power of friendship and resilience.”

Performances are scheduled for Jan. 13-15 (Thursday through Saturday) all at 7 p.m.; Jan. 20-22 (also Thursday through Saturday) at 7 p.m., and Jan. 16 and 23 (Sundays) at 2 p.m. The Jan. 20 date is labeled as a “relaxed” performance.
