It’s the joyous Rudie-DeCarlo musical comedy, a hilarious and heart-warming internationally acclaimed reworking of the beloved story, filled with music and dance, fun special effects, laughter and love, proving once again that there’s no place like home. Follow Dorothy (Molly Gilman) and her companions along the windy road to that mystical place where dreams really do come true and nothing is as it seems, as they do battle with the vain but glorious Queen Coo-ee-oh (Adya Mohanty), join forces with a Vagabond Princess (Lauren Holiday) who is revolting (although she doesn’t look it), meet a Shaggy Man (Aaron Burns/Graham Silbert), a Wogglebug (Casey Maher), a Rainbow Maiden (Megan Combes), and a Blue Meanie (Mary Ann Pianka), face such looming monsters as war, drought and mortgages, and learn a great deal about the world around them, and even a little bit about themselves. Guest appearances by Uncle Henry and the Wizard, too! Sparkling costumes by award-winning designer Ashley Hayes, magical FX by The Attic Room, lilting musical numbers, and the heartfelt discoveries about family and home that develop along the road to OZ all bring the adventure to its deservedly happily-ever-after. Kids and adults alike will be delighted by this brand-new Dorothy adventure! Photo opps with the actors after the show, and every child receives a free Theatre Games Activity Booklet with fun acting games to play at a party, on a rainy day, or with family and friends. The Playhouse is offering free tickets August 15-16 & 22-23 for this delightful Family Theatre Musical for Kids 2 to 102 as part of its annual All Join In Free Festival of Theatre.
