Monroe, CT – Masuk Drama Department is off to see the Wizard on November 18 and 19th, presenting the MGM classic fantasy musical, The Wizard of Oz live on stage!

When asked why the musical resonates with audiences, Tom Simonetti director of Masuk’s Drama Department, said: “From the time I was a kid, the line that Glinda recites at the end: ‘You always had the power, my dear, you just had to learn it yourself’ has always resonated with me.”  

“In the past few years, many educators have seen our young people lose their confidence.  This is such an inspiring tale about finding and learning about yourself, even through adversity.”

Follow the yellow brick road in this delightful stage adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s beloved tale, featuring the iconic musical score from the MGM film.  The timeless tale, in which young Dorothy Gale travels from Kansas over the rainbow to the magical Land of Oz, continues to thrill audiences worldwide.
