Welcome Back to the Emerald City!

It's Christmas Time again and somewhere in Kansas, Dorothy is lonely for her friends back in Oz. So with the help of kindly Mister Tinker, she builds a magical wish machine and returns to the Emerald City just in time for the big holiday celebration.  

 

But the holly is quickly stripped of its jolly when a sassy sorceress named Nefariosa crashes the party and kidnaps Santa Claus!  Now Dorothy must recruit the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion to help her rescue Saint Nick and save Christmas for the children (and adults!) of the entire world.

 

CHRISTMAS IN OZ  is an enchanting, full-length Broadway-style musical treat for the entire family.  L. Frank Baum’s classic characters have been beloved by young and old for generations.  And now, a cast of all new characters has been added to the glittering residents of Baum’s magical world.  New faces in the Marvelous Land of OZ include the Gidgety-Gadgety Whiz-Bang Wish Machine, Brigadier Bloop, the evil Nefariosa, and Santa Claus himself! 

 

The script and score are overflowing with unforgettable songs, thrilling dance numbers, classic comedy, and magical special effects.   And it's all the brainchild of  Ron Lytle, creator of “The Man Who Saved Christmas,” “Oh My Godmother!” and more than a dozen other musicals.

The show's score is orchestrated for 14 Musicians.

No orchestra?  No problem!  We've got your back(ing tracks)!
