Wizard of OZ
Director – Mary Rowley
Musical Director – Kevin Whitley
Choreography – Helen Stone
The story begins on a small farm in Kansas, where Aunt Em and Uncle Henry are worried about a twister looming in the sky. Where is Dorothy? As usual she is busy daydreaming of what could be beyond The Rainbow.
Suddenly the twister strikes and takes the house up over the rainbow along with Dorothy inside. It lands in Munchkinland on top of the Wicked Witch of the East.
The Mayor and all the munchkins are afraid; whoever killed the Wicked Witch must be more powerful. But, reassured by the good Sorceress of the North, the munchkins and Dorothy celebrate the witch’s death.
Dorothy asks the munchkins how to get back to Kansas but they do not know. The Sorceress tells Dorothy only The Great Wizard of Oz knows how, so they tell her to follow the YELLOW BRICK ROAD. She meets the Wicked Witch of the West who wants revenge for her sister’s death, but the Sorceress has put a magic mark on Dorothy’s forehead to protect her from the witch.
On her way to Oz Dorothy meets a Scarecrow who wants a Brain, a Tin Man who wants a Heart and a cowardly Lion who wants Courage.
Join them on their amazing journey to see the Wizard of OZ
in the Emerald City and their adventures along the way.
