Dorothy definitely isn’t in Kansas anymore. Main Street Theater in Columbiana, OH, presents the opening weekend of “The Wizard of Oz” Feb. 15-17.
Here’s theater owner Don Arthurs.
One of our main focuses is strengthening the families and we want to give families an outlet for creativity. Where they can feel safe, take their kids to it and not have to worry about them hearing things that kids shouldn’t hear.
The Columbiana Theater offers the occasional free movie to help the community grow.
All of our movies here are free to the public and we do that as an outreach as well
Arthurs says Columbiana residents go for more familiar names, like “The Wizard of OZ,” but hopes original works will also attract theatergoers.
There are a lot of artists involved with the theater here and we do really enjoy writing our original content – plays, music, that sort of thing.
He hopes those with a brain, heart and courage will find a home at the Columbiana Theater.
