Mudlark Theatre Presents : The Marvelous Land of Oz
November 20, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$17.00
The Marvelous Land of Oz
Mudlark Theater presents this original musical based on the sequel to “The Wizard of Oz” written by L. Frank Baum, which follows young Tip as he escapes his life as a witch’s servant and sets off on a journey to find the lost princess of Oz and learn about his past. His ragtag crew of companions includes the friendly Jack Pumpkinhead, the dutiful Saw-Horse, the intellectual Wogglebug, and a talking flying machine with the head of a Gump (a creature like a reindeer). Even the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman reappear! Story and music by Anthony Whitaker. Directed by Andrew Billiter.
Mudlark Theater collaborates with kids to tell youth-centered stories. By taking kids seriously as artists and individuals, we create space for transformative experiences accessible to all.
