This February, journey to Oz with The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati! Join Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion as they journey to Oz in this children’s classic.
A cyclone transports Dorothy and her dog, Toto, from Kansas to the technicolor Munchkin Land. Unfortunately, they land right on top of the Wicked Witch of the East — not a good thing! As Dorothy and Toto head down the Yellow Brick Road to find the Wizard and their way back home to Kansas, they meet new friends, each with a wish that they hope The Great Oz can grant for them. A scrawny Scarecrow needs a brain, a rusty Tin Man needs a heart, and a Cowardly Lion needs courage. Along the way, flying monkeys and an evil witch threaten to thwart their travels to the Wizard of Oz, played by LOCAL 12’s Bob Herzog!
Will they make it to Oz? Will the Cowardly Lion get his courage? And will Dorothy make it back to Kansas? Find out when The Wizard of Oz comes to the Taft Theatre February 11-12 and 17-19.
