OZ The Musical
A dazzling musical based on the L. Frank Baum classic story
Book by Tim Kelly
Music and lyrics by Bill Francoeur
Directed by Linda Holland

The timeless “Wizard of Oz” tale has been adapted into a dazzling musical.  A cyclone carries Dorothy and Toto to the magical Land of Oz.  When Dorothy’s house squashes the Wicked Witch of the East, she is ecstatically thanked by the liberated Munchkins and given permission to wear the witch’s powerful silver slippers.  From there, Baum’s lovable characters, rubber-legged Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Tin Woodsman, join Dorothy on a journey to meet the great Oz.  While on their trek, they battle the Wicked Witch of the West, who is determined to get revenge for the death of her sister.  This bright musical is charged with a bundle of wonderful songs and thrill after thrill...  like the escape from the Fighting Trees and encountering the enchanted poppies.  Eventually, Glinda the Good Witch helps Dorothy defeat the evil witch and her winged monkeys.  The great and powerful wizard grants Dorothy’s friends their wishes and of course, helps Dorothy return to Kansas.
