This new play version of the delightful meeting of two of literature’s most famous young ladies unfolds when a young man puts off a book report till the last minute, then suddenly finds himself in a strange place somewhere between Oz and Wonderland. It then becomes his responsibility to unscramble the stories and steer the familiar characters (the Cowardly Lion, the Mad Hatter, the Scarecrow and the White Rabbit, among others) to their ultimate destinations while avoiding the Wicked Witch and the Red Queen. This hilarious, adventuresome romp is filled with laughter and surprises at every turn, and a couple of lessons emerge along the way as well!
This production, directed by Debbie Henderson and presented by the Springfield Arts Council’s YOUTH ARTS AMBASSADORS, features a cast of over thirty students from the Springfield/Clark County area.
