Centenary Social Justice Theatre
Using theatre to illuminate social justice, explore spiritual values and build community.
The Wizard of Oz will be performed Thursday, Friday and Saturday, August 17th, 18th and 19th at 7:00 p.m. with an additional matinee performance at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.
All phases of preparation for the Centenary Social Justice Theatre production of The Wizard of Oz are underway!
A cast of over forty is well into rehearsals perfecting the lines and the dances that all fans of The Wizard of Oz know and love.
A crew of set builders and a lead painter, and costumers have been working away for over a month.
The Wizard of Oz will feature a twelve-piece orchestra; members of Centenary, local students and community members who are combining their talents to create the production’s live soundtrack.
This will truly be a production to behold!
Admission is free, but space is limited and there are no advanced tickets. Seating is first-come, first-served. Doors to the church will open one hour before performances, and seating will begin 30 minutes before performances.
Funding for The Wizard of Oz has been provided by a grant from the Centenary Board of Trustees.

One of Centenary’s ministries is “Social Justice Theatre”. We produce shows that address social justice topics, scripts that discover spirituality through our shared humanity and allow us to shape community with our cast, crew and audience. Donations raised during these shows support community needs including the Backpack Food Program, the Fallenstein Playground, Holy Grounds and the Connections Shelter.
To fulfill our mission, past productions have included shows as diverse as The Laramie Project, You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, Proof, Shrek the Musical, Godspell, The Auction, The Shadow Box, and The Wizard of Oz.
