Ignite Theatre Company Presents The Wizard of Oz (YPE)
A one-hour adaptation of the RSC version of Baum’s classic tale, specially designed for young performers.
Dorothy Gale, a young girl living on a Kansas farm with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, dreams of escaping her mundane life. The family’s mean neighbor, Miss Gulch, threatens to impound Dorothy’s cherished dog, Toto, so Dorothy and Toto run away. Suddenly a cyclone hits, and Dorothy and Toto, seeking shelter in the house, are transported to the Land of Oz.
In Oz, Dorothy meets Glinda, the Good Witch of the North and three new friends. Together, the four new companions make their way towards Oz. Lessons are learned and Dorothy and Toto find that There’s No Place Like Home.
