About the Show

Join this adventurous young lady as she takes your audiences down the Yellow Brick Road to find out why a lion, a scarecrow and a man made of tin are all singing the blues. On this adventure our heroine, Dorothy, must find a way home but, in the process, she must help her new friends unlock their full potential.

What Critics Are Saying About the Show

My daughter and I attended Dorothy in Oz tonight at the amphitheater in Independence KY...Each cast member blew us away, our favorites being Aunt Em and the Tin Man. Their voices were all wonderful. I just wanted them to know that they are so appreciated and what they do truly matters.
— Tionna J.
The kids enjoyed it very much and begged for more performances! TCT always does such a nice job.
— Blessed Sacrament School, grades K-3
