Presented by Corn Exchange's Infant and Junior Youth Theatre, based on the novel by L. Frank Baum.

Join us as our Infant and Junior Youth Theatre presents The Wizard of Oz.

The fantastical story of a little girl, her dog and the magical Land of Oz. Young Dorothy Gale finds herself whisked away to the magical Land of Oz by a Kansas cyclone. How will she ever find her way home?

Wearing the magic ruby slippers, and under the kindly protection of the Good Witch of the North, Dorothy sets out to ask the Wonderful Wizard for advice. On the way, she finds both adventure and friends; the Cowardly Lion who thinks he needs courage, the Scarecrow who thinks he needs brains, and the sentimental Tin Woodsman who desperately yearns for a warm heart.
