The Keene Lions Club is excited to be back on the Colonial Theatre Mainstage with its annual Broadway-quality show. This year, they will bring you the timeless classic, The Wizard of Oz.
This faithful adaptation by the Royal Shakespeare Company features all the most beloved songs and moments from the 1939 classic film, brought to life on stage. Young Dorothy Gale is swept away by a tornado from her Kansas farm to the magical land of Oz. There, she encounters a host of whimsical characters: good witches, bad witches, animals that talk, scarecrows that walk, and things magical to behold. To find her way home, she must journey along the Yellow Brick Road to see the mysterious and all-powerful Wizard in Emerald City. Along the way, she makes new friends, but must also brave many dangers, including the Wicked Witch of the West, who will stop at nothing to get her hands on Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers. To make it home safely, Dorothy must learn an important lesson: there’s no place like home.
All proceeds from the Keene Lions annual show go towards the Keene Lions Foundation—which helps provide the community with eyesight screenings, glasses, scholarships, non-profit financial support, and more!
