We’re off to see the Wizard! This timeless tale of a Kansas farm girl who travels over the rainbow – only to discover there’s no place like home – has been charming audiences for generations. Follow the yellow brick road all the way to the Emerald City in this delightful stage adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s enduring classic. Filled with brains, heart, and courage, the annual Spring Musical features the talented cast, choir, and crew from Penn Alexander School. The Wizard of Oz is fun for the whole family!
