About this show

"It's a hoot! A return trip to the Emerald City in the Santa Monica Playhouse's imaginative, colorful musical" — LA Times

It's the joyous Rudie-DeCarlo musical comedy, a hilarious and heartwarming internationally acclaimed reworking of the beloved story, filled with music and dance, fun special effects, laughter, and love, proving once again that there's no place like home. Follow Dorothy and her companions along the windy road to that mystical place where dreams really do come, as they do battle with such looming monsters as war, drought, and mortgages, and learn a great deal about the world, and even a little bit about themselves.

"Delightful, different, and entertaining…great for children and adults of all ages." — The Entertainer

Birthday and tea parties, hosted by costumed fairy tale characters, are available with every performance. And every child receives a free Theatre Games Activity Booklet with fun acting games to play at a party, on a rainy day, or with family and friends.
