When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage. The Wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West to earn his help. The Little Theatre brings to life all the magic of the Munchkins, the Flying Monkeys, a tornado, good witches and bad, poppy fields and the special bond of friendship that keeps a rag-tag band of travelers faithful to each other and to their mutual cause.
Performances: July 16th through August 2nd, 2015
Written by Neil Simon
Directed by Jim O'Connell
