About This Show

Seattle Children’s Theatre presents The Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum, with music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harbug and background music by Herbert Stothart. The work was adapted by John Kane for the Royal Shakespeare Company, based upon the motion picture. Linda Hartzell directs.

Take a journey over the rainbow with this family favorite classic. When Dorothy gets her wish of escaping her dull Kansas farm-life, it brings her to a world she could have only imagined. Filled with munchkins, witches, and even flying monkeys, this wondrous new place is bright and exciting, but it isn’t home. With her new friends, Dorothy sets out to ask the all-powerful wizard to help her, help them all, return to who they really are inside.
