The Wizard of Oz is perhaps the most popular children’s story ever written… A cyclone carries Dorothy and her dog, Toto, to the magical land of Oz, where they encounter all the famous characters from the pen of L. Frank Baum...  the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Woodsman, the rubber-legged Scarecrow, Glinda the Good Witch and the evil Witch of the West, who is determined to destroy Dorothy and steal the secret of the silver slippers. The play is filled with wonderful thrills...  like the escape from the dark forest of the Fighting Trees.  And we don’t want to forget the awesome and funny meetings with the great Oz himself. This is a story of adventure, excitement and overcoming adversity.
