SURRENDER DOROTHY Book by Michael J. Tobin, Music & Lyrics by CAROLE WISE
POSTPONED TO 2020-21 SEASON
It’s “groovy” 1969, early summer, and Dorothy Gale is a conventional 42-year-old single Mom (her husband died in the Vietnam War) and life has not turned out quite like she thought it would after returning from Oz in sepia ‘39. With her troubled, teenage son, Rebel, and Toto Two at her side, they leave Bethel, New York and take a trip over the rainbow- returning to the Land of Oz to seek out Dorothy’s friends, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion- who are less than cool with the generation gap. With the help of Good Witch, Willow, they combat the wicked witch, Hagatha (the fifth witch no one ever talks about), as they journey to see the far-out Wizard to (hopefully) realize once again, “there’s no place like home”. A World-Premiere Folk Musical with music and lyrics by nationally known, award-winning singer and songwriter, Carole Wise!
