Follow the yellow brick road! The Wizard of Oz comes to EPAC!

December 7 – December 23

"'The Wizard of Oz' is a winner at EPAC"

Jane Holahan, Lancaster Online

After a tornado takes her to a faraway land, all Dorothy wants is to get back home. But she’ll have to travel through the magical land of Oz to the Emerald City first! Along the way, she’ll meet Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion. Together they journey to meet the Wonderful Wizard of Oz in hopes of finding a brain, a heart, courage, and a way home!

"It was Oz-some!"

Michael C. Upton, The Ephrata Review


Rich Mehrenberg,

But everything is not as it seems in this strange but beautiful land. Dorothy and her friends will have to face more than just a Wicked Witch to find what they’re searching for. Join EPAC for a magical night to enjoy this beloved family classic!

Wizard of Oz will run from December 7 through 23, 2017, at the Sharadin Bigler Theatre.
Thursday night shows are at 7:30pm; Friday and Saturday shows are at 8:00pm. Tickets are $15 - $32.

Upcoming 2018 Season

Ephrata Performing Arts Center Presents Our 2018 Season

As we enter the last months of 2017, we at EPAC are planning our 2018 season. We hope it will be another year in which diversity is celebrated, something we always try to do. After all, the things that make us different from each other may also make us curious about each other. By exploring the ways we're different and the reasons why, we may find that which unites us. At EPAC, we believe that all stories should be told.
