Will Dorothy and Toto ever find their way back to Kansas? Will her friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, ever find a brain, a heart and the nerve? The answer is definitely "yes" when your audience help the plot along in this participation play. Your audience will be simultaneously engaged in two very entertaining activities—experiencing the theatre by actually being involved in the action and rescuing Dorothy and her friends from the Wicked Witch of the West.

- "This interactive play was a great fit for our small theatre and with our "For Kids, By Kids" theatre mission. We were able to give our young actors important training on inviting and controlling participation, and the children in our audiences loved being the munchkins. Being able to help Dorothy and play a role was a special experience that helped make this story more accessible to young audiences."

- "Charming. The children in the audience gave themselves wholeheartedly to the event."

- "Our most popular show of the summer season. The audience responded so well, we will probably do this show again next year! Wonderful participation."

- "Our church is just beginning a theatre ministry under my leadership and promotion. Oz was our first show performed mainly for underprivileged children's audiences and it was indeed a "rousing" success! The children wrote us many cute letters on how they loved Dorothy, the other characters and especially how they got to be trees."
