A contemporary original play, loosely based upon characters from L. Frank Baum's OZMA OF OZ, woven into a timely new story. This modern fantasy explores the relationship between a now teen-aged Dorothy and her elderly Uncle Henry. Flexible casting: minimum 12 actors (5 men, 4 women, 3 either); maximum of 19 + (7 men, 6 women, 6 either). Twelve scenes, simple or elaborate set pieces. Modern and fantastic costumes.
Dorothy reluctantly accompanies her eccentric Uncle on his life-long dream voyage to Australia. They argue during a violent storm and are both blown off the boat to Oz, a land where there is no time. Unwittingly, they activate Tic Toc and time begins in Oz. Their adventures lead them to Bill, a giant wisecracking chicken, the wacky Wheelers, the vain and vicious Langwidere, and, finally, to the superstrong, wonderfully wise Ozma. Ozma rescues Uncle Henry from the lapideous lair of the volcanic gnome King; and teaches Dorothy to look beyond Uncle Henry's outward signs of aging to recognize his true competence, energy, and worth.
