Brookwood School presents "The Wizard of Oz"
Posted on: January 25, 2010
Please join over 150 Brookwood School students, parents, and friends as we present this year's musical, "The Wizard of Oz.."
Little Dorothy Gale of Kansas, like so many girls her age, dreams of what lies over the rainbow. One day a twister hits her farm and carries her away. At the end of the rainbow, she finds herself in picturesque Munchkinland; home of the fascinating people, the Munchkins. They start her off on the yellow brick road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, who perhaps can help her return home. Along the way she meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and a Cowardly Lion, who agree to join her journey. Dorothy must overcome many obstacles including a Wicked Witch in order to find her way back to Kansas.
