Do you already have TICKETS to see The Wizard of Oz on Friday, October 20th?
PLEASE NOTE: You do not need tickets to the film to participate in the Costume Parade or Workshops. Tickets to see Wizard of Oz are $12.50 each and must be purchased through the Capitol Theatre ticketing system. Great news for youth! Tickets are free for youth 25 and under! However, all tickets must still be reserved through the Capitol Theatre ticketing system (paid and complimentary tickets). There is a $2.50 Capitol Theatre improvement fee applied to each transaction. If you are purchasing or reserving multiple tickets for your group, it is best to do this all at once, so that you are only charged the $2.50 fee once.
