Land of Oz — The Play

Adapted by J.D. Newman

From L. Frank Baum’s classic novel

(Perfect for Professional, College/University, Community, High School, Middle School, and other Youth Theatre Groups)

The farmgirl Tip lives in the north of Oz with the scheming witch, Old Mombi. When the witch tries to turn her into a statue, Tip runs away with the help of the pumpkin-man and sawhorse she has brought to life. Tip helps the Scarecrow King escape from the Emerald City after it is conquered by the Army of Revolt. Can Tip find the lost Princess Ozma and bring peace to the Land of Oz? This 50-minute tour-de-force is an ideal school touring show for university and professional theatres.
