Harborfest and Oswego Children's Theater will be teaming up again this summer to present The “Wizard of Oz” as the annual Harborfest children's musical.

This classic tale, originally written by central New York native L. Frank Baum, and later turned into one of the most beloved musicals in movie history is guaranteed to please audiences of all ages.

For the last several years the Harborfest Children's Musical has become a popular feature in the festival's schedule. Continuing this tradition Oswego Children's Theater will present a special youth edition of the show featuring a large cast over 75 of area youth along with bright costumes and a familiar story.

As with last year's production, award winning directors Lyndsie and Kenneth Jones will take charge of the stage and music leadership roles, aided by producers Wayne and Kelly Mosher along with a group of dedicated parents.

Harborfest is one of the few admission-free festivals of it's type in the country. It was founded with the mission of creating a nationally recognized entertainment venue that attracts and engages a broad and diverse audience, celebrates and builds the local community, and advances economic development in Oswego, New York. It would not be possible to continue the event without the massive continued support received from the City of Oswego, businesses, organizations, government entities, and individuals and family members.
