The greatest family musical of all time, is how some people describe the Wizard of Oz. The production is touching down in Logan at the Ellen Eccles Theatre December 1st at 8 p.m. and December 2nd at 1 p.m.
Wendi Hassan, executive director of the Cache Valley Center for the Arts, says the magical production is a celebration of the 1939 MGM movie and will be presented with breathtaking special effects.
Hassan says the show is especially exciting for local audiences because Logan’s own resident and author Gina Wickwar has written and published a whole series of Oz books.
“We’re hoping people will realize that there’s not just a book about Wizard of Oz, but an entire series that (was) written by Frank Baum,” Hassan explains. “So we’re hoping people will rediscover the stories and enjoy, as well as the show, discovering that branch of literature.”
Hassan says tickets for Wizard of Oz are available at the Ellen Eccles Theatre ticket office at 43 South Main in Logan. She says it is the perfect show for the holiday season.
