The Wizard of Oz on Granville Island

  • Date: November 3 to 12, 2023
  • Location: Granville Island Stage (1585 Johnston Street, Vancouver)
  • Admission: Tickets $18-$58 can be purchased online

L. Frank Baums classic novel comes to life in this faithful adaptation by the Royal Shakespeare Company features all the most beloved songs and moments from the 1939 classic film, brought to life onstage.

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 Dorothys magical ruby slippers. To make it home safely, Dorothy must learn an important lesson: theres no place like home.
