After her tornado-tossed house smooshes a wicked witch, Kansas farm girl Dorothy steps out in her Ruby Crocs and onto a wild and crazy adventure that is stuffed silly with giggles and guffaws.
Encouraged by a bunch of goofy Munchkins, a brainy Scarecrow, tender-hearted Tin Man and lionhearted Cowardly Lion, Dorothy seeks out the not too terribly Terrible Wizard of Oz and confronts cackling crows, rock-star Ozzies, poppy peddling gangstas, screechy winged monkeys, zombified Winkies, and finally the epically aquaphobic Wicked Witch of the West.
With a large, flexible and active ensemble, there are moments for everyone to shine in this 60-minute, flat-out farce. This contemporary adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s classic adventure is filled with jokes, gags, puns, surprises and slapstick humor, and can be produced on a shoestring budget.
