Dorothy in Wonderland - Gig Harbor Summer Stage Production July 10-26


The worlds of Oz and Wonderland collide in this fantastically fun romp, cleverly and carefully adapted from the works of L. Frank Baum and Lewis Carroll. Dorothy Gale has made her way to the end of the Yellow Brick Road, and the wonderful Wizard of Oz is just about to help her get back home to Kansas. But before she can hop into the wizard’s balloon, another whirlwind appears over the Emerald City, sweeping Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion away to Wonderland. Equipped with their new assets — brains, heart and courage — Dorothy’s friends try to help her find her way home, meeting many other interesting characters along the way, including Alice, the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, March Hare, the Cheshire Cat and many more. They also must face a dangerous new foe — the Queen of Hearts! Dorothy and Alice team up to defeat the queen at croquet, but will that be enough to return Wonderland to normal? And how will they ever get back home to Kansas and to London?

"Dorothy" opens July 10th and runs through July 26th on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 7:00PM. All tickets are $5.00 and are available on site immediately prior to the show. This is a main stage out of doors production performed by adults as well as children in the Sehmel Homestead Park Amphitheater located at 10123 78th Ave NW in Gig Harbor, WA.
