ABOUT THE SHOW

L. Frank Baum’s beloved story of a young girl’s adventure in a magical land has entertained audiences for over a century. This stage adaptation features the characters and songs from the 1939 blockbuster film. Join Dorothy and Toto as they “Follow the Yellow Brick Road” through the Land of Oz to reach the Emerald City, where the great and powerful Wizard of Oz will help them get home. Along the way, Dorothy encounters witches, Munchkins, talking trees, winged monkeys, and most importantly, three unique new friends: a Scarecrow with no brain, a Tin Man with no heart, and a Lion with no “nerve.” Their journey is a testament to friendship, understanding and hope in a world filled with both beauty and ugliness.
