MOC Musical Theatre of Upper Montclair, now in its 81st season, will present the classic musical The Wizard of Oz this month in Memorial Auditorium. Included in the score are the popular songs "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," "Munchkinland (Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead)," and "We're Off to See the Wizard (Follow the Yellow Brick Road)." MOC is excited to be working with the legendary Flying By Foy (credits include Broadway's The Lion King, The Who's Tommy, and productions of Peter Pan starring Mary Martin, Sandy Duncan and Cathy Rigby) to fly 7 characters on stage. The show is appropriate for the entire family and is based on the cherished 1939 movie.
Show dates are Friday, November 11 & 18 (8 p.m.), Saturday, November 12 & 19 (8 p.m.), and Sunday, November 13 & 20 (2 p.m.). For tickets, call the MSU box office at (973) 655-5112 or buy online at.
