Ballet Theatre of Ohio invites you to follow the yellow brick road to the Akron Civic Theatre The Wizard of Oz. Artistic Director, Christine Meneer, is BTO's resident choreographer and costume designer. The costumes are delightful and her creative vision is sure to measure up to the high quality for which BTO is famous. Munchkinland and Emerald City will be a glimmering fantasy of color, designed by Jack Ballance. Mr. Ballance has also designed BTO's Nutcracker.
