The Wizard of Oz
A Virtual Workshop Reading
By L. Frank Baum
Dramatized by Andrew Scanlon
Alberta Theatre Projects is thrilled to announce a new play commission dramatized by playwright Andrew Scanlon and directed by Haysam Kadri. Gett an inside look on a brand new play in development without leaving your school!
Grade Recommendation: K-12
A prairie tornado sees young Dorothy and her little dog Toto transported from the fields of Kansas to the wonderfully strange and vibrant world of Oz. An iconic cast of loveable characters help Dorothy on her journey to find the all-powerful Wizard of Oz, and hopefully, a way back home. That’s if they can avoid falling into the clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West. A classic adventure about the power of friendship, The Wizard of Oz reminds us of the simple beauty and magic of home.
