“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 heart-warming 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 fun for kids of all ages.” The Tolucan Times. Birthday Parties, hosted by costumed fairy tale characters, are available with every performance.
