The staging was terrific; some great effects.... Most of the cast was good; Dorothy, unfortunately was weak. The most fun was watching so many kids and little girls dressed as dorothy.... glad I went; glad I didn't pay full price.

How to described TWoO? Cute. It was superior to most high school / college plays but it was certainly not broadway quality or anywhere near wicked. Good cast. Solid performances. Good singing and dancing. Great seats through Goldstar!

I love the Wizard of OZ, and this show was pretty good, though more like a college or very good High School production. The sets were a bit weak. Much of the show seemed more like pantomine. The crowd was awful. It started nearly 20 minutes...continued
