A cyclone carries Dorothy and her dog, Toto, to the magical land of Oz, where they encounter all the famous characters from the pen of L. Frank Baum...  the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Woodsman, the rubber-legged Scarecrow, Glinda the Good Witch and the evil Witch of the West, who is determined to destroy Dorothy and steal the secret of the silver slippers.  The play is filled with wonderful stage thrills...  like the escape from the dark forest of the Fighting Trees.  And we don’t want to forget the awesome and funny meetings with the great Oz himself.  Eventually Dorothy defeats the evil witch, finds a way to return to Kansas, and her companions have their wishes granted.

Produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Denver, CO.

Letter from the WCT President

Dear patrons,
  This year marks our 50th anniversary here at Walpole Children's Theatre. I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for your support over the years. We at W.C.T. strive to provide quality, affordable family entertainment for the community, and theatrical education for the children who participate in our productions. You, the audience, have allowed us to do just that for the last half century, and for that we are truly grateful!
   W.C.T. is an all volunteer, non-profit organization. The many people who work so hard to bring our productions to the stage do so because they believe in what we do, and they contribute their amazing talents out of the goodness of their own hearts. 
   Unlike similar groups, we do not charge the kids who perform in our shows. We feel strongly that ability to pay shouldn't be a factor in whether or not a child is able to participate in W.C.T.
   The majority of the funds we need to operate come directly from ticket sales. Over the years, we have tried to keep our shows as affordable as possible. Unfortunately, our expenses, like everyone else's, continue to increase year after year, and this season we find it necessary to increase our ticket prices for the first time in a decade. This small increase will help us bring our income in line with our expenses, and hopefully help us to operate for the next 50 years, and beyond!  Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Paul MacPhee
President, Walpole Children's Theatre
