The Emerald City is in Chelsea Square this summer! Actor/playwright Brooks Reeves has set the beloved classic The Wizard of Oz in present-day Chelsea, where Dorotea and her little dog too must face the Wicked Witch and her Flying Monkey Army in order to protect her family and the place they call home. This comic adaptation is staged in the streets, parks and by the fountain. Audiences can move with and be creators of the action of this immersive production.
The evening begins at 6 p.m. with live music, street performances and craft brews at the pop-up BearMoose Beer Garden on Winnisimmet Street by the Chelsea Theatre Works. Guests are encouraged to enjoy dinner via take-out or delivery from Chelsea's exciting culinary delights. And Your Little Dog Too, performed in a bilingual adaptation (English/Spanish), begins on stage at the Beer Garden at 7:30 p.m. The production is designed to engage English-speaking and Spanish-speaking audiences alike.
Performances are free!
