The Wizard of Oz

Follow the yellow brick road in this delightful stage adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s beloved tale The Wizard of Oz. This faithful adaptation by the Royal Shakespeare Company features the iconic moments and musical score from the 1939 classic MGM film, brought to life onstage. Young Dorothy Gale is swept away by a tornado from her Kansas farm to the magical land of Oz. There, she encounters a host of whimsical characters: good witches, bad witches, animals that talk, scarecrows that walk, and things magical to behold. To find her way home, she must journey along the Yellow Brick Road to see the mysterious and all-powerful Wizard in Emerald City. Along the way, she makes new friends, but must also brave many dangers, including the Wicked Witch of the West, who will stop at nothing to get her hands on Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers. To make it home safely, Dorothy must learn an important lesson: there’s no place like home.

The Wizard of OZ is a timeless tale of friendship, courage and the power to believe. TM!wo full casts of performers in grades 1 -12 will rehearse on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays, beginning January 19, to bring this magical story to life
