Spring Musical, "The Last Oz Story"

The Last Oz Story Book and lyrics by David Meyers; Music by Scott Michal (Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois)


Forget the happy ending. There's a new witch in town—Peloros, the witchiest witch of them all—and since she arrived, things have gone completely haywire in Oz. The Munchkins and other Oz folk are running around the Emerald City like they've totally lost their reason. And the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion are powerless to stop it. In fact, they're part of the problem. What's to be done? There's only one person whom even the wickedest witches fear and that's Dorothy Gale. But no one knows where she is. Meanwhile, on the wrong side of the rainbow, a young woman has been admitted to a Kansas hospital for observation. Having just survived a tornado, she is trying to convince anyone who will listen that she is Dorothy Gale, just like in the fairytale. But no one believes her. With time running out, Dorothy must find a way to help her friends before it's too late. This original sequel to the L. Frank Baum novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a funny and moving tale of friendship and redemption told through lovable characters, witty dialog and unforgettable songs.
