Patchwork Girl of Oz, The

CLASSIC. With only two loaves of bread left on their bread tree, two Munchkins, Ojo and Unc Nunkie, must leave their home and travel to Munchkin Country. On the way, they stop at the house of Margolotte and Dr. Pipt, a magician who practices magic without a license. When Dr. Pipt sprinkles the Powder of Life on a patchwork doll, she comes to life and accidentally knocks over Dr. Pipt’s Liquid of Petrifaction on Unc Nuckie and Margolette, turning them into marble statues. To save Unc Nunkie and Margolotte, Ojo must travel through Oz to collect the five items Dr. Pipt needs to make an antidote: a six-leaved clover, the left wing of a yellow butterfly, water from a dark well, three hairs from the tip of a woozy’s tail, and a drop of oil from a live man’s body. Audiences of all ages will love this adorable play, which features favorite characters from the Wizard of Oz as well as a host of new fantastical creatures including the Patchwork Girl, Mr. Wise Donkey, Miss Foolish Owl, the Glass Cat, a Woozy, a giant named Mister Yoop, and even some Hoppers, Horners, and Tottenhots!
