Radio City Entertainment's cast of The Wizard of Oz will appear twice in Central Park April 3 as a part of the Easter "Eggstravaganza." Performances are at 11 AM and 12:45 PM. Starting at 11 AM, Commissioner Henry Stern will open the proceedings at Rumsey Playfield (72nd & 5th) with Boomer, who will be named honorary Toto. Dorothy will then sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," followed by the Scarecrow's "If I Only Had a Brain," the Tinman's "If I Only Had a Heart" and all three performing "Off to See the Wizard." A finale, in which children in the audience will be invited to come up on stage and sing, caps the event.
The second performance will take place at the Bandshell at 72nd and 5th. Both performances are free.
