The Wizard of Oz
By L. Frank Baum
With Music and Lyrics by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg

"Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high,
There's a land that I've dreamed of, once in a lullaby..."
Join Dorothy and her dog Toto, along with her friends The Scarecrow, The Tin Man and The Cowardly Lion, as they follow the yellow brick road all the way to the Emerald City to meet the wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Meanwhile, The Wicked Witch of the West wants revenge, but getting even with one little girl and her dog is going to be trickier than she could ever have imagined...
Packed with all the original songs and magic from the iconic film, starring Judy Garland, The Wizard of Oz has become a staple Christmas ingredient for families the world over. Now the award-winning creative team of director Gill Robertson and designer Karen Tennent bring this classic story to life on the Lyceum stage!
