The Wizard of Oz

When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. Glinda, the Good Witch of the North helps guide them as they follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard. On their travels, they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage and face the Wicked Witch of the West at every turn looking to get back her ruby slippers. When they meet the wizard, he asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West to earn his help. This stage version is based on the 1939 movie that starred Judy Garland.
