A cyclone catapults young Dorothy from her Aunt Em's Kansas farm to the Land of Oz, and she must find a way to get home. With guidance from the good witch Glinda, Dorothy resolves to find the great and powerful Wizard - the only one who can help her return home. Along the way, she befriends a Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion while evading the Wicked Witch.

The Gondoliers

Libretto - W.S. Gilbert       Music - Arthur Sullivan

October 13–28, 2018

Venetian gondoliers and strident egalitarians Marco and Giuseppe Palmieri wed local village girls Gianetta and Tessa. Unbeknownst to them, one of these two revolutionaries is not actually a Palmieri - an elaborate baby-swapping scheme means he is the king of Barataria. Further complications arise when the Grand Inquisitor of Spain informs them that the king - whichever it is - was married as an infant to Casilda, daughter of the (bankrupt) Duke and Duchess of Plaza-Toro.
