There is no place like home.

Dorothy and Toto get swirled into a cyclone and find themselves dropped in the land of Oz – a land where scarecrows talk, lions are cowardly, and witches are very real.

In this fantastic adaptation of the original L. Frank Baum novel (there are no singing munchkins here) every fantasy element is easily and practically staged with just 10 cubes. You too can bring winged monkeys to life!

Gender flexible. Excellent ensemble opportunities. Budget friendly.
