There’s No Place Like Paramount For The Magic of the Wizard of Oz

You may have been to Oz before. But never like this.

Acclaimed Chicago director Amber Mak dazzled audiences with Paramount’s production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid. She made kids of all ages believe in Santa again with Elf The Musical. Now she’s taking audiences over the rainbow and into another fantastical world with The Wizard of Oz, playing now through January 6, 2019 at Paramount Theatre, 23 E. Galena Blvd. in Aurora.
