The most beloved tale of all time comes to life on the stage. Dorothy and her three friends trot delightfully and tunefully down that fabled road of yellow brick in The Wizard of Oz.

After a tornado whisks her away to the magical land of Oz, young Dorothy Gale teams up with a Scarecrow, a Tin Woodsman and a Cowardly Lion to find the mighty Wizard of Oz, who can send her home. Along the way, they must avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West, who is trying to steal the mysterious magic slippers that once belonged to her evil sister… but are now on Dorothy’s feet. Dorothy eventually learns just how magical friendship can be and how wonderful it can feel to go home again.


This is a wonderful opportunity for young performers to play challenging and fun roles.  Students will work with Director Alison Gilbreath, who holds a BA Degree in Theatre Arts and who has trained and worked with Europe’s top theatre professionals, Connie Mockenhaupt, holds a Master of Arts Degree and is an award-winning choreographer and musical director.  They will then perform their play on the Sutter Street Theatre stage as part of our Family Series program.
