SYNOPSIS:
All of your favorite characters are here: Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, but in this winner of SEVEN Tony Awards (including Best Musical!), these characters are given a hip, urbane, and very witty new image. While the story faithfully re-tells Baum’s original story, you’ll love the rockin’ and rollin’ soundtrack as Dorothy and her friends “ease on down the road!”

Actors of all ages and ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
CALL 303-856-3797 or email afterthought_theatre@yahoo.com to schedule your appointment.
