Inspired by L. Frank Baum’s stories, this clever adaptation puts the audience front and center, literally! Kids become cast members, singing, dancing, and acting onstage alongside the professional cast. One of our most interactive shows at LICM Theater, this production received rave reviews in its prior run. Going beyond the traditional telling of the Oz stories, “Journey to Oz” uses personal journal entries and historic newspaper headlines to bring the history of author L. Frank Baum and illustrator W.W. Denslow to life. Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion take the audience with them on this lively, playful trip down the yellow brick road.

Based on the work of author L. Frank Baum and illustrator W.W. Denslow
