The Wizard of Oz

Adapted by Stephen Hotchner
Directed by Amanda Perry (NHS ’20)

Dorothy has been captured by the Wicked Witch of the West and her friends, the Lion, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow must save her. But the Tin Man is rusted, the Scarecrow unstuffed, and the Cowardly Lion…  well, he’s scared. The Lion asks the children in the audience to help them overcome the Wicked Witch and save Dorothy. Children from the audience prove they have power over the Wicked Witch by helping their friends on the stage.

While this play is intended to be performed for children, it can be enjoyed by audience members of all ages, especially the young at heart. Audience participation is frequently encouraged throughout the production.
