FOLLOWING on from the huge success of ‘All Shook Up’ staged in 2017, the award-winning Tralee Musical Society’s Youth is delighted to present ‘The Wiz’ running from Wednesday, November 28 to Saturday, December 1.

Adapted from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and made famous by Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, this musical version is a fantasy for today.

Join Dorothy on her journey along the yellow brick road and her adventures in the Land of Oz. This wickedly amusing, energetic carnival of fun is set to music in a dazzling, lively mixture of rock, gospel and soul.
