On this date in 1939, MGM’s THE WIZARD OF OZ made its official premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Featuring a glorious score by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg, the movie adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s book became an all-time cinema classic.
Tams-Witmark proudly licenses three stage musical adaptations of THE WIZARD OF OZ:
- The WIZARD OF OZ (RSC Version), which closely follows the movie script
- The MUNY version, which debuted at the Municipal Theatre of St. Louis in 1942
- THE WIZARD OF OZ Young Performer’s Edition, a one-hour version for young actors
On the anniversary of THE WIZARD OF OZ, we challenge you to take this quiz: Can you complete these lines and lyrics from the movie (and our RSC script)? Good luck!
