3-D Theatricals’ production of The Wizard of Oz brings the 1939 MGM classic based on L. Frank Baum’s endearing tale to vibrant life on the stage. As Dorothy and her misfit pals journey down the yellow brick road, mounting rousing renditions of “Over the Rainbow” and “We’re Off to See The Wizard,” audience members can revisit the golden era when tin men wore hats and winged primates never left the castle without a vest. The show goes on inside Plummer Auditorium; originally constructed in 1930 and since restored, the 1,300-seat, Spanish Colonial-style theater houses its original grand Wurlitzer organ, wrought-iron chandeliers, and a four-story-high mosaic dome as lofty and glamorous as Betty Boop’s childhood dreams.
