Before you and your family are off to see the Wizard at Starlight Theatre this summer, consider checking out “75 Years of Oz” at the Crown Center Shops. This free, interactive exhibit, which runs through May 4 in the Showplace event space on Level 1 of Crown Center, celebrates the 75th anniversary of the release of the MGM award-winning film, The Wizard of Oz.
The exhibit has attracted more than 6,000 visitors weekly since it opened in February. Families follow Dorothy’s footsteps through the Land of Oz, traveling the yellow brick road, meeting up with Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, visiting the Emerald City and even sneaking a peek into the Wicked Witch’s castle. A sampling of Oz memorabilia from local collector Jane Albright’s expansive collection is also on display.
When you visit “75 Years of Oz,” be sure to enter to win a family four-pack of Starlight tickets to see all your favorite Oz characters come to life on our stage June 10-15.
