This original stage version of THE WIZARD OF OZ premiered at the Municipal Theatre of St. Louis (MUNY) in 1942. The first Muny production featured Evelyn Wycoff as Dorothy and Al Downing as the Munchkin Mayor. The musical includes songs "Over The Rainbow," "Munchkinland (Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead)," "If I Only Had A Brain/A Heart/The Nerve," "We’re Off To See The Wizard (Follow The Yellow Brick Road)," "The Jitterbug," and "The Merry Old Land of Oz," as well as a song called "Evening Star."
Using L. Frank Baum's book – and not the MGM film – as its source, this version employs story and songs as elements of a classic stage musical. This original script also includes the characters of Gloria and Lord Growlie.
Put a smile on everyone’s face with THE WIZARD OF OZ!
