Lincoln College presents 'The Wiz'     Send a link to a friend

[FEB. 24, 2004]  Lincoln College Division of Fine Arts will present the musical "The Wiz" Feb. 26-29 at the Johnston Center for Performing Arts on the campus of Lincoln College.

"The Wiz," by playwrights William F. Brown and Charlie Smalls, is an adaptation of Frank Baum's classic novel “The Wizard of Oz.” Lincoln College's production is an updated, urban version of the story that now begins in 1985. Dorothy's adventures in the Land of Oz have been set to music in a dazzling, lively mixture of rock, gospel and soul.  Some of the characters in this production will strongly resemble such well-known '80s icons as Boy George, Elton John, Cyndi Lauper and the Artist formerly known as Prince. 

Show time is at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with a matinee performance at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Ticket prices are $5 for adults, $4 for children and senior citizens. To reserve tickets, call the box office at (217) 732-3155, ext. 280, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
