East Cleveland Theater's current production of "The Wiz" is an abolute delight and great family entertainment, as the story and song will appeal to audiences from nine to ninety.  

Now playing weekends (Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday matinee) thru May 21, 2006, "The Wiz" is a great Mother's Day gift idea as the cast showcases wonderful talent living in our midst. 

The headliner is a 12-year-old musical virtuoso, Alexis Floyd, who plays Dorothy, in this musical program.  Hint: Think "The Wizzard of Oz" times ten. A cast of 27  players provides lots of eye-fetching pleasures.

Of exceptional note are the off-stage contributions of Kyle Primous, the Director/Choregrapher; and pianist Dr. J Lan Ye, whose adept musicality brings together the visual feast on stage.

The East Cleveland Theater, located at 14108 Euclid Avenue, across from the Library, is in its 38th season of providing high-quality entertainment.  For box office reservations call: (216) 851-8721.
