Production dates for “The Wizard of Oz” will be July 23-25 and July 30-Aug. 1 in the Westonka Performing Arts Center. WCT had planned to present the musical last summer but had to cancel due to COVID-19 restrictions. “The Wizard of Oz” will be the second full musical production for the new community theatre. Its successful inaugural show, “The Music Man” was presented in 2019, followed by a livestream production of “It’s a Wonderful Life” in December, 2020.
