Little Dorothy Gale of Kansas, like so many girls her age, dreams of what lies over the rainbow. One day a twister hits her farm and carries her away over the rainbow to another world. Come join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, the Cowardly Lion and Toto as they travel the universe of Dorothy's imagination.
Featuring the songs Over The Rainbow, Munchkinland (Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead), If I Only Had A Brain, If I Only Had A Heart, If I Only Had The Nerve , We're Off To See The Wizard (Follow The Yellow Brick Road), The Jitterbug, The Merry Old Land of Oz Poppies (Optimistic Voices) and If I Were King Of The Forest.
This production uses as much of the aura of the film as is possible to create in a modern theatre, while it strives to look and sound just like the famous film, in telling the story.
Put a smile on everyone's face and come enjoy the classic family musical, THE WIZARD OF OZ!
