The Witch Is Dead),” “If I Only Had a Brain/a Heart/the Nerve,” “We’re Off to See the Wizard (Follow the Yellow Brick Road),” “The Jitterbug,” and “The Merry Old Land of Oz.” Click your heels together three times and join The Scarecrow, The Tinman, The Cowardly Lion, Dorothy… and Toto too, as they journey through the magical land of Oz to meet the Wizard and obtain their hearts’ desires. Rediscover your love of the story of Oz in this fantastic musical treat for the whole family and join us as “We’re Off to See the Wizard!”
