The Wizard of Oz

Segerstrom Center for the Arts

Projected onto the Renée and Henry Segerstom Concert Hall’s giant screen, the 1939 Judy Garland classic that forever changed the world of cinema gets a lush treatment this week. The Pacific Symphony, OC’s premier outfit of classical-music performers, plays the film’s original score live. If it’s been a while since you’ve seen the story of a little girl who steals the shoes off a dead woman, befriends strange men on the street, succumbs to the opiate effects of poppies and eventually murders her nemesis, don’t miss this lavish production. Bring the kids!
