Writer and Director René J. F. Piazza has taken one of our most cherished classics and redeveloped the story line with enough sight gags, puns and updated dialogue that would make even the Wicked Witch of the West laugh. The First Act follows the famous story, close enough. The Second Act, Dorothy finds herself in court and put on trial. To tell any more would spoil the fun. Be reminded of Dorothy and friends as they travel down the Yellow Brick Road while adding a new level of appreciation for all generations to share. You’ll giggle, you’ll cheer, you’ll nudge the person next to you. *Recommended for 13 and older.
