Ease on down the road with the music you love from the awarding winning musical July 8 to August 7, 2011
It’s part rock. It’s part gospel. It’s part soul. In a dream collaboration, Dallas Theater Center and Dallas Black Dance Theatre, the city’s oldest continuously operating dance company, will fill the Wyly Theatre with dancing, singing and laughter for the dazzling musical that won seven Tony Awards when it opened on Broadway in 1975.
Featuring Brierley Resident Acting Company members Liz Mikel as Evilienne and Hassan El-Amin as The Wiz, this eye-popping, high-energy family hit starts with a tornado and keeps lifting from there, as Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion “Ease on Down the Road” and ultimately learn there’s no place like home.
Don’t miss the Ease On Down the Road Kick-Off Event on Friday, July 8, 5-8pm, before the DTC Pay-What-You-Can performance of The Wiz. All tickets for this Pay-What-You-Can performance will be sold on site. Drop by the FREE party before the show and enjoy live entertainment, food and specialty beverages–then purchase your Pay-What-You-Can tickets at the Wyly Theatre ticket counter. *For this one time special event, the Wyly Theatre ticket counter will be open at 5:00pm for ticket purchases.
Contact Paula at My Personal Valet for information about ordering your tickets for The Wiz.
