WINTER/SPRING 2016 YOUTH PRODUCTION – The Wizard of Oz
Dorothy Gale and her little dog Toto go on a magical journey over the rainbow to the land of Oz. Along the way, she meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, who join her on her search for her path home, seeking help from the great and powerful Wizard. With the help of Glinda the Good Witch, she defeats the Wicked Witch of the West and helps her new friends achieve their greatest dreams. This bright and colorful stage version has all the well-loved music from the classic MGM film, including "Over the Rainbow," If I Only had a Brain," "We're Off to See the Wizard" and more.
