August 09, 2016 : OUL’s Theatre Production of The Wizard of Oz Finishes Run with Sold-Out Standing Room Only Crowd


The Ohio University Lancaster theatre program’s final performance of its run of The Wizard of Oz filled the newly- renovated Wagner Theatre to capacity with a thrilled audience of all ages.


“We’ve never had this many in the theatre for a performance,” A. Victor Jones, artistic director and lecturer of theatre at Ohio University Lancaster announced prior to the show. “It really shows how much this community supports the arts in Lancaster.”


Over $200,000 was raised through community donations for renovations to the Wagner Theatre. The donations allowed for improvements to the sound system and theatre acoustics, as well as a new lighting system and many aesthetic improvements.


Upcoming fall semester shows for OUL’s theatre program include Dead Man’s Cell Phone running November 3-6 and A Charlie Brown Christmas, from December 1-4. Tickets for reserved seats are available for purchase online at  or by phone 740-681-3353.


A rich tradition of theatre continues to thrive and grow on the Ohio University Lancaster campus. OUL’s Theatre program offers four major productions a year with The Wizard of Oz selected for production  during the Lancaster Festival. The faculty and staff of Ohio University Lancaster are dedicated to continuing a strong, successful and educational theatre program. For more information on the OUL Theatre program, contact Jones at
