Expect clowning, chaos, and mischief in this three-man strolling street performance: a contemporary re-telling of Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

“An innovative and original approach with which to engage people in research topics.”

The Tinman, Scarecrow, and Lion are in great jeopardy. The Wizard of Oz has banished them from Oz… until they have learned how to be lead their people without catastrophes, violence, and death. Right now they are lost, confused, and desperately need your advice. Unfortunately, they are easily distracted. So learning how to be a great leader – one that uses heart and brains and courage is an uphill task. Only you can help them get back home.
