WAM and Tallgrass Film Festival join forces for the 10th annual outdoor movie night, and, for the second year in a row, we invited our friends from Music Theatre Wichita, this time for the 1939 family classic The Wizard of Oz.

Judy Garland stars as Dorothy Gale from Kansas who, along with her little dog, Toto, is whisked away by a tornado and lands in the wonderful world of Oz. Come dressed to impress the wizard—we’ll have costume contests for adults, kids, and dogs!

Bring your lawn chairs, picnic blanket or broom and claim a spot on the Paula and Barry Downing Amphitheater lawn. Avoid melting like the Wicked Witch with cool drinks from the Muse Cafe’s outdoor cash bar.
