The next play in Austin Scottish Rite Theatre‘s Family lineup combines an American classic with a South Asian flair. The Wazir of Oz is a Bollywood-inspired tale full of live music and dance, and shares the story of a young girl named Drithi who follows the marigold path to Oz. This children’s play opens on Saturday, Feb. 3 and runs through Feb. 25.
About the Show: When the Wazir of Oz gets word that the girl with red sandals is headed to Oz, he and his sidekick do all they can to stop her. Join Drithi and her fellow travelers as they learn the benefit of seeing things from a new perspective. Live music by Austin’s Sacred Cowgirls and an original script and choreography featuring traditions and culture from South Asia. This play is approximately 45 minutes long.

As with all children’s plays at Austin Scottish Rite Theatre, kids are invited to come early for coloring time in the grand lobby as well as to snack on cookies or drinks (priced at $1 each). Once the theatre doors open, kids are invited to sit on the carpets near the stage to get up-close to all of the action and enjoy the best seats in the house. And kids can stick around after the show for photos and autographs with the cast.
