Two Hot Air Balloons Added to Steampunk ‘Oz’ Experience for 2 Nights

The Lincoln Amphitheatre’s “The Wizard of Oz” pre-show activities will include hot air balloons displayed for two nights.

On Thursday, July 21 and Friday, July 22, two hot air balloons will be tethered from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. CDT in the Lincoln Amphitheatre parking lot. The two hot-air balloons will be tethered for display only while weather permits.

The Lincoln Amphitheatre and Evansville Civic Theatre are co-producing “The Wizard of Oz” to run July 21 – August 7, Thursday-Saturday evenings with a Sunday matinee at the 1500-seat, roofed Lincoln Amphitheatre.

“The Wizard of Oz” production’s look is inspired by Steampunk, a science fiction genre influenced by the Wild West and Victorian Britain.

“The Wizard of Oz” complete experience will include enhanced multimedia projections, a yellow brick road extended from the stage, and a costume contest for all ages beginning one-hour prior to performance.
