THEATER | 'The Wiz'


Ease on down to The Lyric Theatre this week for a youth performance of the Tony Award-winning musical 'The Wiz,' presented by OFC Creations. A cast of 36 students from city and suburb schools will transport audiences to the magical Land of Oz, with familiar characters who will sing and dance while escaping the evil witch Evillene and discovering what "home" means to them. This performance is the first from a new residency at The Lyric Theatre residency of Opportunities For Creativity Creations (OFC Creations), directed by Eric Vaughn Johnson.

'The Wiz' will be performed on Friday, November 30, at 7 p.m., and Saturday December 1 at 2 and 6 p.m. at The Lyric Theatre, 440 East Ave. Tickets are $12 and are available online or at area Wegmans. 667-0954;
