A large, fire-breathing dragon comes to life through a sea of multilayered green lighting and the journey through the untold story of the witches of Oz—the "Wicked Witch of the West" and "Glinda the Good Witch"—begins. The story is chock full of light-hearted jokes and life lessons about the friendships that make us who we are and how being true to yourself can be tough. Younger kids will be bewitched by costumed Munchkins and flying monkeys, and when the song "Defying Gravity" reaches its powerful crescendo, shockwaves ripple through the audience and breathless cheers follow. As theatre was meant to be experienced, not just watched, this is one show that will engage your whole family and will be talked about for years to come.
