Join us for an exciting adventure and preview performance of The Wizard of Oz as part of the annual Dobbin’s Conservatory Extravaganza on Tuesday April 9, 2024, at the River Campus. The Extravaganza begins with a 5:30 p.m. (doors open at 5:15 p.m.) social hour of light entertainment, hors d’oeuvres generously provided by SEMO Dining, and the opportunity to interact with our senior students.

The Jeanine Larson Dobbins Conservatory of Theatre and Dance produces the Extravaganza as an annual fundraiser for select seniors to travel to New York City to participate in a series of master classes and to showcase their talents for agents and casting directors as they launch their careers in theatre and dance.

Children are encouraged to come, and after the show, guests and families are invited to meet the cast.

Tickets are $50 per person and tables of eight for $375 are available. Seating is limited.

Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by April 6, 2024. To RSVP or for more information, contact Sara Steffens in the Dobbins Conservatory of Theatre and Dance or (573) 651-2149.
