The classic tale that inspired countless productions comes to life in this delightful musical. Like so many girls her age, little Dorothy Gale of Kansas dreams of what lies over the rainbow. When a twister hits the family farm and carries her to another world, Dorothy—along with her beloved dog Toto and new friends the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion—travels the universe of her imagination down the fabled yellow-brick road. Along her journey, Dorothy learns how magical friendship can be and how wonderful it is to return home.
