The Wizard of Oz - Youth Edition
By: L. Frank Baum
Music and Lyrics by: Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg
AN UNFORGETTABLE ADVENTURE OVER THE RAINBOW
When a tornado whisks young Dorothy Gale and her loyal canine companion Toto away from their humble Kansas farm and drops them in Munchkinland, Dorothy discovers a world more vibrant than she ever imagined. Dorothy and Toto, along with the eccentric characters they meet along the way, are off to see the Wizard as they embark on an extraordinary journey through the magical world of Oz. On the yellow brick road, they encounter witches, Munchkins, winged monkeys and more!
Returning to Grandstreet after nine years, this delightful stage adaptation of the iconic MGM film includes the award-winning score featuring well-loved favorites If I Only Had a Brain, Follow the Yellow Brick Road, and the Oscar-winning Over the Rainbow. Join Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the Cowardly Lion as they learn they’ve had the power they’ve been looking for all along.
