The safety of Tower patrons, staff, volunteers and performers is of paramount importance. With continuing COVID-19 cases and illness, plus evolving industry norms and best practices, the Tower Theatre now requires proof of full vaccination for entry to all performances. Those not fully vaccinated, ages 12 and up, must show proof of a negative result from an approved COVID test taken within 72 hours of the performance. “Fully vaccinated” means receiving the final vaccination dose of Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson at least 14 days before the performance date. All patrons need to provide this information as a condition of entry. Based on Oregon mandates, mask wearing is also required inside the venue by everyone 5 and up, regardless of vaccination status.

These protocols are subject to review and change according to federal, state and county recommendations and guidelines.

Follow the yellow brick road in this delightful stage adaptation of L. Frank Baum's beloved tale, featuring the iconic musical score from the MGM film. The timeless tale, in which young Dorothy Gale travels from Kansas over the rainbow to the magical Land of Oz, continues to thrill audiences worldwide.  With such memorable songs like  "Over The Rainbow," "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead," "If I Only Had A Brain/A Heart/The Nerve," "We're Off To See The Wizard ," " the RSC version also includes "Poppies (Optimistic Voices)" and "If I Were King Of The Forest."

This RSC version is a more faithful adaptation of the film. A more technically complex production, it recreates the dialogue and structure of the MGM classic nearly scene for scene, though it is adapted for live stage performance.  The MGM film The Wizard of Oz, based on L. Frank Baum's 1900 novel, premiered Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on August 15, 1939. This stage adaptation was first presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Barbican Centre in London in 1987.
