Ballet gives Wizard of Oz the silent treatment The Western Arkansas Ballet told the story of The Wizard of Oz its own way with performances this weekend (March 31 and April 1) at the Arkansas Best Corp. Performing Arts Center in the Fort Smith Convention Center. Though The Wizard of Oz is so well-known that it could be told without words, the performers with Western Arkansas Ballet relied more than ever on their movements and facial expressions to tell the tale.
