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. Extended! 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 road to that mystical place where dreams really do come, as they do battle with the vain but glorious Queen Coo-ee-oh, join forces with a Vagabond Princess who is revolting (although she doesn't look it), meet a Patchwork Girl and a Rainbow Maiden, face such looming monsters as war, drought and mortgages, and learn a great deal about the world, and even a little bit about themselves. Guest appearances by Auntie Em and Ozma, Princess of Oz, too! "Delightful, different, and entertaining…great for children and adults of all ages." THE ENTERTAINER. Sparkling costumes by award-winning designer Ashley Hayes, magical FX by The Attic Room, lilting musical numbers, and the heartfelt discoveries about family and home that develop along the road to OZ all bring the adventure to its deservedly happily-ever-after. Birthday and Tea Parties, too.
