Dorothy and Toto thought their adventures (or misadventures) in the Emerald City were over once they returned to Kansas. Little did they know that the Wizard of Oz would seek them out to return in Oz! an all new exciting tale that welcomes back all of the familiar faces from the timeless 1900 children’s book and 1939 MGM film. If you’d like to take a trip back to Oz along with Dorothy, we’ve got a great deal for HOTC readers: while they last, you can get half-off tickets. Get them before they skip down the Yellow Brick Road!
Oz! sees Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the cowardly Lion journey back to the Emerald City to battle an even wickeder witch than ever. The tale begins when Dorothy, back in Kansas, suddenly finds herself talking to her favorite chicken. Before she knows what’s happening, the Wizard of Oz appears and conjures a tornado to bring Dorothy back to the magical land where she met all of the beloved characters we know from the classic film.
