Oz: The Land That Time Forgot

unnamed-1.jpg

It’s been almost one hundred years since anyone from the outside world has stepped foot in Oz. In that time, things have changed for the worse….a new ruler, the Demented Dodo, has overthrown the Ozian government, and he cannot be stopped. Meanwhile back on earth, Clea has been elected student council president, and the new principal of Gale Junior High is making ridiculous regulations in a student handbook he has written. As a thunderstorm rages on, Clea and the school mascot, Ferret-o, are transported to the land of Oz. Can Clea and her pal Ferret-o save Oz and also make changes for the good at her middle school? Who will stand with the Dodo? Who will stand with Clea? Featuring a wide variety of characters from all of Baum’s Oz tales. World Premiere. Appropriate for family audiences.
