By V. Glasgow Koste. Inspired by L. Frank Baum.
Cast: 7m., 4w. (extras.) Scraps springs to life in mid-girlhood, created from a patchwork quilt and born of Dr. Pipt's magic powder of life. The strange doctor contrived her as his slave, but she promptly rejects that role, choosing instead to go on an adventure with Ojo. Warned that she is headstrong, Scraps replies, "What's wrong with having a strong head?" Ojo and Scraps' mission: to collect ingredients that will form a potion to revive Ojo's laconic uncle—temporarily turned to stone in a laboratory accident. Naturally, they succeed. Scraps calms the threatening Woozy, brainstorms with the wise Scarecrow, mediates an end to a war, and enlists Princess Ozma to restore Ojo's uncle. It's all in a day's adventure for Scaps! Area staging.
