New Comedy

Return to Oz

By C. Edward Wheaton

CLASSIC.  In this sequel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Dorothy and a friend are swept up in a tornado and arrive inside a packing crate to the Land of Ev, where they learn that the ill-tempered Nome King has plans to capture and destroy the Emerald City.  Dorothy travels to the Emerald City to warn the Scarecrow, who is now the ruler of the Emerald City.  Along the way, she meets many fanciful creatures and must find a way to cross the Deadly Desert.  Witty and whimsical, your audiences will love this fresh, original adaptation, which incorporates elements from several of L. Frank Baum’s Oz novels.  See our new L. Frank Baum play, Queen Zixi of Ix, another Oz classic!

New Holiday Play

A Tree in the House

By Kari Catton

HOLIDAY COLLECTION.  Looking for a warm, fuzzy holiday play?  This collection of three short plays definitely fits the bill!  In “A Tree in the House,” an older dog explains to a puppy why his owners have brought a tree into the house and decorated it with "chew toys."  In “The Christmas Pickle Tradition,” zoo animals vote on whether the Prairie Chicken’s unusual Christmas ornament should be displayed on the Christmas tree.  And in “Muletide Season,” a merry mule who calls himself the “Muletide King” tries to spread some muletide cheer by singing muletide carols and delivering a muletide log.  These plays are easy to stage and are sure to charm audiences of all ages with their holiday cheer!
