January 24, 2014 by  

The Wizard of Oz Ballet is being presented by the Memphis Ballet Company this weekend and will take the audience on a magical journey down the fascinating yellow brick road. This trip is for people aged 55 and older, and flyer printing might have been a chosen device for advertising it to people in this community and in the surrounding regions.

Guests will enjoy watching as Dorothy and her beloved group of friends take a delightful journey and meet many interesting characters along the yellow brick road. This classic fairytale is told with a twist and audience members might well find that they are spellbound.
