SDPAC’s “The Wizard of Oz” opens next Thursday night, Feb. 16


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – One week from tonight, Feb. 16, the Southern Dance and Performing Arts Company (SDPAC) will present “The Wizard of Oz,” a timeless musical meant for all ages.

SDPAC, a program of the Sylacauga Alliance for Family Enhancement (SAFE), will hold nine shows in total at the B.B. Comer High School auditorium starting next Thursday and running until Saturday, Feb. 25.

Evening performances will be Feb. 16-18 and Feb. 24 at 7:00 p.m. A matinee performance will be at 2:00 p.m. on Feb. 25.

Four school performances will take place on Feb. 22-23

“The Wizard of Oz” is based on L. Frank Baum’s famous classic that follows Dorothy Gale, a young girl who lives on a farm in Kansas that longs for somewhere she can find excitement – somewhere over the rainbow. Dorothy gets more than she bargained for in the evil Miss Gulch, a twister, and a whimsical, magic-filled journey to the Land of Oz.

The play, featuring a cast of more than 25 actors, is under the direction of J. Patrick McDonald with musical direction by Bethany K. Peppers, choreography by Rachel McDonald, and production management by Mary Love Hendrickson.

Tickets are available for $15 per person at, by calling (256) 245-1669, or at SDPAC, located at 109 N. Broadway Ave. in Sylacauga. Tickets can also be purchased at the door.
