In case of severe inclement weather that will cause an unpleasant patron experience or put our actors at risk, we will cancel the show at park. A performance cancellation will be announced on Facebook the day of show. Announcement time may vary. For the most current update, please call box office at 727-823-7529. Patrons will be able to exchange their tickets for a different night. This will be based on seat availability. If an exchange is not possible, American Stage will issue a refund.

“Fresh…entertaining, fast-moving and fun [with] sass to spare…Sharon Scott, a veteran performer with a mammoth voice, plays three roles. When she opens the second act as wicked witch Evillene, the energy really starts to pop. Scott is hilarious…On the duet Be A Lion, [Whitney] Drake and [Sara] DelBeato send a stunning harmony into the night sky…When we meet the Wiz, the set by Scott Cooper really starts to come to delicious life.” -Stephanie Hayes, Tampa Bay Times
What the Patrons are Saying:
"We saw it Saturday - EXCELLENT show!"
"The Wiz was the best show in the park that I have ever seen and that is saying a lot, since they are all very good! What a great performance!"
