Faithful to the movie, this musical tells the story of Dorothy Gale’s adventures in the magical land of Oz. Brought there by a tornado, she only wants to get back home to Kansas. She is helped by the unlikely friends that she meets along the way; a scarecrow, a tin man, and a cowardly lion. Together they face the Wicked Witch of the West and get an audience with the wizard himself.
