Ballet on Wheels set for two weekend performances of ‘The Wiz’

If you want to see the wizard, bypass the yellow brick road and head down to The Halloran Centre for the Performing Arts this weekend.

For their season-ending show, Ballet on Wheels will do two performances of “The Wiz,” the 1975 classic urban version of Frank L. Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz” – best known for the motion picture starring Diana Ross as Dorothy and Michael Jackson as Scarecrow.

The community-based ballet school and youth dance company will take the stage Saturday, June 8 at 7 p.m. and a Sunday afternoon matinee, June 9 at 2:30 p.m. Both shows will be at the Halloran Centre for Performing Arts and Education, located at 225 S. Main Street.

“The Wiz” is a high-energy, culture-filled and family-fun dance journey with a twist that you do not want to miss,” said Chauniece Thompson, Executive Artistic Director of Ballet On Wheels. “The show features jazz, modern, classical ballet and hip-hop production numbers – something for everyone to enjoy!”

The show will feature dancers ages 3 – 14 in a variety of dance genres and styles.

Tickets are currently on sale at ticketmaster.com for $24 to $30. For more information, visit www.balletonwheels.org or call (901) 870-4348.
