Musical. Book by Jennifer Kirkeby. Music and lyrics by Michael Pretasky. Based on the book by L. Frank Baum (written as a companion piece to The Wizard of Oz).
Cast: 1m., 7w. (plus 6m. or w., extras.) Dot and Tot of Merryland is the delightful musical journey of two children who are swept away in a boat to the enchanted Valleys of Merryland. Along the way, they travel to the fanciful Valley of the Clowns where all is joyful and fun. But soon, Tot wants to return to the home that he misses. Dot and Tot travel on to find the Queen of Merryland, for only she can help them return. They meet Mr. Left and Right Split, who speak every other word in a sentence, and all of the toys of Merryland. The Queen welcomes them, and she joins the children for more adventure as they try to find her stolen thinking machine. Finally, they arrive at the Valley of the Lost Things, where they meet a banished troll and discover the missing thinking machine. In true Oz style, goodness triumphs, imagination abounds, and Dot and Tot return home stronger and wiser. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 15 minutes.
