Based on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
Book adapted by Joshua Goldberg
Lyrics by Joshua Goldberg and Ella McGrail
Music by Joshua Goldberg and Corrie Owens-Beauchesne

Journey with Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Lion- and Toto too- down the Yellow Brick Road! This whimsical new musical adaptation goes back to the roots of L. Frank Baum’s classic novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. When Dorothy is whisked away from dreary Kansas to the magical, marvelous land of Oz, she must travel to the Emerald City to see the Wizard- with helping hands and Wicked Witches around every corner! She’ll soon discover that with a little brains, heart, and courage, home is never far away.

SESSION II: Babe & Bunyan's Big Adventure!
July 8 - July 21
Performances July 20 & 21

A New Musical by Miles Burns

This here is the larger than life story of the legendary folk sidekick, Babe the Big Blue Ox. Being born an oversized blue ox, you can imagine that Babe had a pretty hard time fitting in- that is until he met Paul Bunyan, the mighty lumberjack. Together they cleared forests faster than anyone, and there wasn’t a tangled river they couldn’t straighten out. Some say they even made the 10,000 lakes. It’s going to be a mighty tall tale, and an awfully big adventure!

Session III: Alice
July 22 - August 4
Performances August 3 & 4

Based on Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll
Book adapted by Miles Burns
Lyrics by Miles Burns, Scott Hermenau, and Lewis Carroll
Music by Miles Burns and Scott Hermenau

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank and of having nothing to do, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. The ever curious Alice followed after him, tumbling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where each moment is curiouser and curiouser! There she’ll meet the Hatter at his tea party, the smiling Cheshire Cat, the contrary Tweedle Dum and Dee, the temperamental Queen of Hearts, and all the other mad denizens of Wonderland. Will she ever find a way back to her golden afternoon, and finally discover the answer to the Caterpillar’s question, “Who are you?"
