(UPPER MONTCLAIR, NJ) -- The Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum, adapted by Erin Detrick, comes to Montclair Studio Playhouse from February 15-23. When Dorothy drops into the Land of Oz, only one thing is certain: she’s got to find a way back to Kansas. A funny and fast-paced journey down the yellow brick road ensues, as Dorothy and her new friends travel to the fabled Emerald City to meet the Great Oz.
When Oz demands a steep price for sending her home, a perilous new adventure begins. Full of possibilities, this imaginative adaptation captures the heart of L. Frank Baum’s classic tale.
