This beloved tale, in which a Kansas farm girl travels over the rainbow to discover the magical power of home, has been entertaining audiences for generations. All the songs we’ve loved for years are here including “Over The Rainbow,” “Munchkinland (Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead),” “If I Only Had A Brain/A Heart/The Nerve,” “We’re Off To See The Wizard (Follow The Yellow Brick Road),” “The Merry Old Land of Oz” and “If I Were King Of The Forest.” This production also commemorates the 60th anniversary of Tanglewood Youth Theatre, which began in the fall of 1959.
The Wizard of Oz is presented by arrangement with Tams-Witmark.
