L. Frank Baum’s classic novel comes to life in The Wizard of Oz. The film was made into a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jeremy Sams in 2011. This musical uses the Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg songs from the film and includes some new songs with music by Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice.
Young Dorothy Gale is swept away by a tornado from her Kansas farm to the magical land of Oz. Here she meets a very unusual cast of characters – the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion, and together they go on a quest to see the Wizard of Oz, each of them seeking what they want most in life. Making their way along the Yellow Brick Road through a series of hair-raising encounters, they arrive at the Emerald City only to be told by the Wizard that they first must kill the Wicked Witch of the West before he will grant their wishes.
They eventually overcome many dangerous challenges and dispose of the witch (although quite by accident), and return only to find that the Wizard is really just a humbug. He craftily addresses everyone’s wish but Dorothy’s, which is to return home to Kansas. So once more Dorothy and her friends set out, this time to find the Good Witch of the South. These last adventures end happily with Dorothy and Toto returning home, thanks to something she had all along.
