The Wizard of Oz - Dementia-Inclusive Film

  • Edmonds Center for the Arts 410 4th Avenue North Edmonds (map)

When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, finding along the way a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion seeking courage.

"The Wizard of Oz" is presented as part of ECA's Dementia-Inclusive Series. Dementia-Inclusive films are relaxed, or informal theatre experiences. Patrons may talk or get up during the film —which is OK. Theatre house lights are left on low so the audience can see and move around if necessary. Although events are designed with accessibility for patrons with memory loss as a priority, an all-ages audience is very welcome! In particular, the series presents an opportunity for younger family members, grandchildren and friends to spend time with elders in an intergenerational setting, and to connect over classic films. "The Wizard of Oz" will feature a live opening act by Barclay Shelton Dance Centre.

Cost to Participate: $10 Regular/$2 for seniors with limited disposable incomes
