SPRINGFIELD -- Dorothy, Toto – and Munchkins – will be on hand as Springfield High School Theatre debuts “The Wizard of Oz,” on Friday, March 31, at the school.

The play is based on the 1939 movie starring Judy Garland, which tells the adventures of Dorothy and her dog, Toto, as they follow the Yellow Brick Road to meet the Wizard in hopes of returning home.  Along the way, they meet a Scarecrow, who needs a brain; a Tin Man, who is missing a heart; and a Cowardly Lion, who wants courage. 

The students will present three shows daily, at 9 a.m., noon and 7 p.m. on Friday, March 31, and Monday through Friday, April 3-7. Admission is $5. 

A special dinner theater performance will be at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 8. Admission is $25.  Tickets are on sale at the school office.
