Thoroughly enjoyable and they stayed with the original story line, almost! Dorthy talked a little fast in her excitement but all the seats were great, lots of children, basic scenary but colorful nonetheless. Good blend of period photography...continued

Fun for all ages. Music was great and just as enjoyable from when I saw this story as a child. Costumes and props were colorful.

Play was fun - good acting and nice sets. The backdrop at one point was rather odd - looked more like Arizona than Kansas. Also, the audience was incredibly rude. People talked throughout the play as if they were in their own homes.

About the Ticket Supplier: Warner Theatre

The Warner’s special place in the history of Washington began in the 1920s when dozens of grand theaters and moviehouses lit up downtown. Built first for vaudeville and silent movies, the Theatre was opened as the Earle Theatre in 1924.

The Earle switched to a movies-only policy in 1945 and in 1947, owner Harry Warner, one of the Hollywood’s Warner Brothers, visited Washington and told his tour guide Julian Brylawski (one of the original builders) that since he owned the theatre, his name should be on the marquee. Thus the Earle Theatre became the Warner Theatre.
