An Oz Story

July 6 - 7, 2019

Journey with Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Lion- and Toto too- down the Yellow Brick Road!  This whimsical new musical adaptation goes back to the roots of L. Frank Baum’s classic novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. When Dorothy is whisked away from dreary Kansas to the magical, marvelous land of Oz, she must travel to the Emerald City to see the Wizard- with helping hands and Wicked Witches around every corner! She’ll soon discover that with a little brains, heart, and courage, home is never far away.


Upside Arts Day Camp (open to ages 7-17) provides a unique summer experience with original shows written specifically for the campers! Students work together to build confidence, creativity, and develop skills needed to perform on stage, while rehearsing for a fully staged production.
