This is the original L. Frank Baum story, as framed by the MGM movie, and enhanced by local playwright Jeannette Jaquish to have more humor, action and spotlight scenes by the Munchkins, Flying Monkeys, Emerald Citizens and Winky Guards. Wonderful goosebump quality music throughout, quirky wit, and physical humor make this probably the best Wizard of Oz show you will ever see!
