In this beloved children’s tale, Dorothy, her dog Toto, and their Kansas farmhouse are carried away by a tornado to a faraway country called Oz. It’s a magical, fantastical land of Munchkins, Wizards and Wicked Witches. But it’s no place like home…
Desperate to return to Kansas, Dorothy and Toto, and their newfound friends Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion, set out on a perilous journey along the yellow brick road in search of the Emerald City. There they hope to meet the legendary and all-powerful Wizard of Oz, who alone has the power to grant them their every wish!
This dramatized version of The Wizard of Oz features a full cast of beloved characters, accompanied by music and sound effects. Children – and adults – will find their imaginations fully engaged by this audio presentation of the great American classic.
