Additional Info

A magically melodious musical journey to the land of Oz. Heart-stirring adventure combined with terrific tunes, from the lilting "Ring the Bells," the toe-tapping "Emerald City March," "Three Cheers for the Wizard," to Dorothy's ballad, "I Can't Hold Back the Tears," and the Wizard's confession, "I'm a Humbug." A sparkling collection of show tunes with just enough rock, some good jazz, and lovely ballads. Please note: This charming, original stage adaptation of L. Frank Baum's classic story is not the same as the movie musical.
