Little Dorothy Gale of Kansas, like so many girls her age, dreams of what lies "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." One day a twister hits her farm and carries her away to a magical new world. This classic story by L. Frank Baum with music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg is sure to be a hit with the entire family. So come join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, the Cowardly Lion and Toto as they travel through the merry ole land of Oz.
