WiZaRD was created and written by singer/crooner George Bugatti, who will also direct. The Harold Arlen Foundation produces.

Gulley will be joined on stage by The Three Crooners in the family-friendly production.

WiZaRD is a musical production centered on the hits of Oscar-winning composer Harold Arlen, who penned the score for the film classic "The Wizard of Oz."

The show, according to press notes, "unfolds in the mythical radio studios of WZRD whose set design combines the nostalgic feel of yesteryears studios with the high tech studios of today. This collection of vignettes, based on Arlen's most nostalgic songs, includes a 'Wizard of Oz' scene, taken from the imagination of Frank Baum on the eve of the creation of his 'Oz' characters. Audiences are taken on a journey from the Cotton Club years, through the golden age of Hollywood, to the Broadway stage ...And to the land of OZ!"

WiZaRD premiered in June 2007 at the Ford Amphitheater in Los Angeles and has since been workshopped in more than 20 performing arts centers across the country.

Creative team, additional cast members and ticket information will be announced at a later time.
