Enjoy dinner and a show at the Iowa State Center when "The Wizard of Oz" touches down at Stephens Auditorium on Tuesday, Jan. 30.

The show includes Oscar-winning music and new songs in an adapted production that celebrates the beloved characters and storyline of the 1939 classic film. "The Wizard of Oz" boasts vibrantly colorful sets and special effects as Dorothy and her friends -- the lion, scarecrow and tin man -- trek through the magical land of Oz in search of the wizard.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are $42-$78, available through Ticketmaster (800-745-3000) and at the Stephens ticket office. An optional 6 p.m. preshow dinner in the Scheman Building features four Oz-themed courses for $32. Dinner reservations must be purchased in advance by phone (294-2479), with a limited number of spots available.
