Come celebrate the 75th anniversary of the timeless classic, The Wizard of Oz, where Dorothy Gale, a young girl from Kansas, gets swept away by a tornado and is dropped in the magical Land of Oz. As she tries to find her way home, she befriends Scarecrow (who thinks he lacks a brain), Tin Man (who feels he has no heart) and Cowardly Lion (who wishes he had courage). This wonderful adventure, based on one of the most popular movies of all time, features an incredible score including Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Follow the Yellow Brick Road, Ding Dong the Witch is Dead, If I Only Had a Brain, and Were Off to See The Wizard.
