A Christmas Wizard of Oz features the characters of the traditional Wizard of Oz, but with a Christmas twist. The characters include the Scarecrow who is a Snowman, the Tin Man who is Toy Soldier, and the Lion who is a stuffed lion that is overly priced. The plot of story is Dorothy and Toto need to get home so she can open her presents on Christmas morning. With song, dance, lovable characters, and a few obstacles along the way, Dorothy and Toto finally get home.
Carl and I had to laugh a few times throughout the performance because Nicholas thought he should interact with the play. At one point he started shouting "OH NO! OH NO!" As we tried to quiet him down, the people sitting around us laughed and whispered, "He is fine, it is a kids show, that is what he is suppose to do." Nicholas bounced along to the music in his seat and would wave to the characters randomly. He truly enjoyed himself.
