It's been 75 years since The Wizard of Oz brought to life the magical, musical tale of young Dorothy and her adventures after her house gets carried away in a Kansas tornado. Released in 1939 and starring a teenage Judy Garland, the film has since become a rite of passage for kids of all ages with its catchy tunes and the lovable Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and Scarecrow, whom Dorothy befriends during her quest to get back home. The film's still as fresh, frightening and funny as ever, and now you can enjoy it on the big screen and accompanied by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra performing Harold Arlen's score. Constantine Kitsopoulos conducts, and it's a pretty sure bet you'll be humming "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" all the way home. Come dressed as your favorite character and you might even win a prize!

Fun for the whole family! See the Yamato Drummers in a thrilling, high-energy, explosive performance of Japanese taiko drumming! The mesmeric and dynamic performers play drums that range from the size of a plate to huge barrel-like Odaikos! The sheer physical strength and movement of the drummers is as impressive as the music, combined with exquisite bronze cymbals, vocals, and bamboo flutes, Yamato creates a kaleidoscope of sound.
Founded in 1993 in Nara—considered the birthplace of Japanese culture—the master drummers of Yamato are young, modern, and brimming with infectious energy as they take the ancient art of taiko drumming and bring it to the present.
