SING ALONG THE WIZARD OF OZ returns to the Castro Theatre. For one full weekend — Friday, August 8 through Sunday, August 10 — audiences will don their best Oz-inspired costumes and warm up their vocal chords to participate in this much anticipated special event.
Although we all know and love the 1939 musical which propelled Judy Garland, as orphaned Kansas farm girl, Dorothy, to stardom with her unforgettable rendition of “Over the Rainbow,” SING ALONG THE WIZARD OF OZ takes the magical musical experience one step further: This special screening of the MGM classic in glorious 35mm Technicolor is complete with subtitles so that the whole audience can sing along.
Hosted by Laurie Bushman and friends, the interactive program includes event-themed goody bags to get the audience in the spirit of cheering on Dorothy and her rag-tag band, and boo-ing the Wicked Witch of the West. Movie-goers are encouraged to add to the fun by dressing up as their favorite character from the film, and can compete to win prizes in the costume contest. Family-friendly afternoon shows will feature kids in costume on parade.
