Return to Oz

CLASSIC. Adapted from the Oz novels by L. Frank Baum. Dorothy is back in Kansas, but it doesn’t take long before she inadvertently winds up in Oz once again. This time, Dorothy and her friend Millicent are swept up in a tornado and arrive inside a packing crate to the Land of Ev, where they encounter Woot the Wanderer. They soon learn that the ill-tempered Nome King has joined forces with the Whimsies, the Phantasms, and the Growleywogs to capture and destroy the Emerald City and retrieve a magic belt. Dorothy insists that they travel to the Emerald City to warn the Scarecrow, who is now the ruler of the Emerald City. Along the way, they meet many fanciful creatures and must find a way to cross the Deadly Desert without their flesh turning to dust. Witty and whimsical, your audiences will love this fresh, original adaptation, which incorporates elements from several of Baum’s Oz novels.
