Toto makes only a brief (but oh-so-cute) appearance in American Stage's The Wiz in the park and maybe that's a good thing Sunday. That's Pets in the Park Night, when pooches get in free. And suddenly everybody wants to be Toto — except those that come dressed as Dorothy. Costumes, please! The Tony Award-winning musical hits the right tempo for the park setting along St. Petersburg's waterfront, says Times performing arts critic Stephanie Hayes (read the review at tampabay.com/things-to-do). Reserved seats are available, but it's just as fun to pack a picnic and sit on the grass. Tickets cost $13 to $32 for shows Wednesdays through Sundays at Demens Landing, 100 First Ave. SE, St. Petersburg. The show runs through May 4. (727) 823-7529. americanstage.org.
