Dance St. Louis presents Wizard of Oz starring Ballet Memphis on January 24 and 25 at the Touhill Performing Arts Center.  With traditional Oz costumes—Dorothy’s blue gingham dress and Glinda’s sparkling pink gown—and music by British composers Gustav Holst, Benjamin Britten and Ralph Vaughn Williams, the beautiful, fresh and heartwarming ballet captures and exudes the true magic of Wizard of Oz.
