“The Wizard of Oz” follows Dorothy Gale of Kansas, who dreams of what lies over the rainbow. One day a twister hits her farm and carries her away to another world. Journey along as Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, the Cowardly Lion and Toto travel the universe of Dorothy’s imagination. Enjoy the songs made famous in the classic MGM film, including “Over the Rainbow,” “Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead,” “If I Only Had a Brain,” “We’re Off to See the Wizard” and “Follow the Yellow Brick Road.” “The Wizard of Oz” is everyone’s favorite movie fantasy, come to life on the stage!
