The Wizard of Oz
By L. Frank Baum, Harold Arlen, EY Harburg, John Kane
Directed by Dave Bristow, Music Direction by Katie Doyle-Baumann, Choreography by Stacie Christensen
TG is thrilled to present this timeless classic! When spirited Dorothy Gale gets caught in a Twister, she finds herself in the merry old land of Oz, accidentally landing her house on the Wicked Witch of the East in the process. Longing to get home, she embarks on a journey down the yellow brick road to visit the Wizard of Oz, who will help her get her wish. Along the way she meets a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, and a Lion, who also go with her to get what they most desire: A brain for the Scarecrow, a heart for the Tin Man, and courage for the Lion. But the Wicked Witch of the West lurks in the shadows, determined to get revenge for the death of her sister, and ultimately Dorothy must conquer the witch in order to get back to the family she desperately misses.
Featuring treasured songs like "If I Only Had a Brain", "We're Off To See The Wizard", "Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead" and, of course, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", The Wizard of Oz is a perfect family outing to celebrate summer in Monroe!
