This musical account of L. Frank Baum's classic story contains all the loving ingredients for popular family audience appeal: an engaging plot, delightful characters, breath-taking action, uproarious comedy and charming music. This versitile script can be performed either by an all-adult cast or by a cast that is half children. The children play stage hands, unseen by the cast, but visible to the audience. They move the slippers, a broom, a haystack, and other set pieces. All the time smiling, tip-toing, shhing each other, and generally having a good time. The tunes are both catchy and memorable, and your audience will leave singing or humming one of them. Further, it is an easy-to-produce, full-length musical with simplifications of the already minimal sets. Dorothy's familiar journey from Kansas to Oz is highlighted by her meetings with all the beloved characters: the Munchkins, Glinda the Good Witch, the Wicked Witch, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion.
The charm of this adaptation is its inventiveness: the ruby slippers have a distinct personality, and Dorothy places importance on the meaning of the heart as well as intelligence. This rich and rewarding musical speaks eloquently of hopes, dreams, and friendship.
