When it comes to producing family musicals, Chicago Shakespeare has an impeccable track record.


Kudos to CST for doing their summer musical with the same class and style as their Shakespeare.



The Play

Take an unforgettable 75-minute journey down the Yellow Brick Road to the magical land of Oz, and share the wonder and delight of live theater with the young people in your life this summer. Dorothy and her trusty pup Toto encounter new friends—including Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion—and face unexpected challenges in the musical stage adaptation of the landmark 1939 MGM film. Be dazzled by the spectacular setting and charmed by its timeless score, featuring such cherished classics as “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”—ultimately to discover that there’s truly no place like home. After the show, meet the cast in the lobby for conversation and photos. Most enjoyed by ages 5 and up.
