Wizard of Oz at Rudder


Uh oh Reveille! Looks like we aren’t in Aggieland anymore!  

Head on over to Rudder Auditorium to be taken on the adventure of your life. From Aggieland to Kansas to Oz, we are going to be going places and meeting new faces, all while battling witches and flying monkeys. Yes, you heard that right, flying monkeys!

Come on folks, we’ve got to help the Munchkins out.

Follow the yellow brick road and help Dorothy, Toto and the rest of her gang to defeat the Wicked Witch of the West and restore order and peace to the enchanted land of Oz.

“The Wizard of Oz” is touring the country this year, from Jan. 29 to May 20. There will be two consecutive showings of this production right here in College Station, with both performances occurring at 7:30 p.m. sharp on Tuesday Feb. 20 and Wednesday Feb. 21.

This lavish production will feature breathtaking special effects with beautiful costumes and song. The crew even has a cute little Terrier mix named Murphy to play Toto.

This whimsical and enduring tale will transport you back in time, into magical lands and back, in just an hour and a half.

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! You’ll almost feel as if a tornado hit you (wink wink).

“The Wizard of Oz” is personally a very dear and favorite movie of mine, as it always reminds me of staying with my grandparents when I was little. Ma and Papa used to always indulge my incessant pleas, allowing me to watch this film just about every time I came to visit them. I used to know every song (still probably do, no shame) and would sing and dance alongside the Television throughout the entire film. Hearing Judy Garland’s vocals in “Over the Rainbow” still puts a smile on my face, as I vividly remember sitting next to Ma on her leather sofa and sharing apple and cheese slices with her.

After it’s all said and done there really is no place like home. Come see this classic family musical and reminisce what it was like to be young again.

Sit back and relax, as this truly special experience is for the whole family to enjoy.
