Synetic Theater’s Current Production of
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz will be held at Georgetown University

As you may or may not be aware, the performance space at Synetic Theater (1800 S. Bell St.) is temporarily unavailable due to excessive water damage from a sprinkler system/pipe malfunction. The resulting damage has forced us to move our upcoming production of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to the Devine Theatre located in the Davis Performing Arts Center on the Georgetown University campus. We are extremely grateful to our friends at Georgetown for coming to our aid so quickly, and for allowing us to use their space for our production.

Please contact Synetic Theater’s Box Office with any questions, comments, and concerns, and to purchase tickets: (703) 824-8060 ext. 117 OR boxoffice@synetictheater.org

“True courage is in facing danger when you are afraid…”

A wizard stuck in a land far away from home—A Scarecrow tied to a pole–A Tinman rusted in a forest–A Lion afraid of his own shadow…their world turned upside down when Dorothy arrives in Oz.

Synetic Theater presents a brand new adaptation of one of the most important cultural texts of the twentieth century, L. Frank Baum’s American masterpiece The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Producing Director Paata Tsikurishvili, Director Ryan Sellers and Choreographer Tori Bertocci have created an environmental and spectacular adventure where verbal and nonverbal communication embrace each other in this innovative and heartfelt story of community, perseverance, and magic. Join Dorothy and friends as they embark on their journey down the Yellow Brick Road and see how Synetic brings to life Baum’s characters in a way only Synetic can. This adaptation of Baum’s beloved children and adults most beloved tales is the premier production in Synetic’s New Voice Series.
