One of the world's most treasured films comes alive when a new national touring company production of "The Wizard of Oz" comes to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale this month.

The show, which runs Jan. 7-19, is an adaptation of the all-time 1939 classic. Developed from the ever popular MGM screenplay, it contains all of the beloved Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg songs from the Oscar-winning movie score, all the favorite characters and iconic moments, plus a few surprises along the way, including new songs by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Starring as Dorothy is Danielle Wade, who was chosen by the Canadian public through the CBC TV reality show "Over the Rainbow." The production also features the same award-winning creative team from London and Toronto. The current production premiered in Las Vegas in August and has been touring throughout the country.

"The Wizard of Oz," is Webber's 18th musical and the first collaboration with his famous partner, Tim Rice, in more than three decades.

The show premiered in Toronto, Ont. in December 2012 and ran through August 2013. The original version of the show had its London premiere in 2011 and closed in 2012, having been seen by 500,000 people. It won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Revival. The Canadian version the following year won two Dora Awards.

Ticket prices range from $34.50 to $80.50 and are on sale now at the Broward Center Box Office and or by calling (954) 626-7814. They are also available online.
