Based on the L. Frank Baum (author of the Wizard of Oz) book of 1913, this award-winning Louise Reichlin & Dancers/Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers production is a magical modern-day fable. The Land of Oz comes to life with dazzle and spectacular dance, including vivid costumes, music and multimedia sets. The dance/multimedia-narrated show presents an intriguing interactive journey that ignites imaginations of young and old alike. The story follows characters from the “Wizard of Oz” and introduce new ones like the exuberant title character the Patchwork Girl. Although known as stories for the young, L. Frank Baum was way ahead of his time, with super strong female characters, diversity as part of his storyline, and advanced technology – he has Glinda, Sorcerous of the South, invent wireless technology – and this was in 1913! Appropriate for all ages – from tiny ones to discriminating grandparents – this production is part of an inspiring family-friendly weekend celebrating Louise Reichlin & Dancers/Los Angeles Choreographers & Dancers’ 40 years of presenting soulful and imaginative dance that takes audience members on their own journey of self-discovery.
