The immortal characters from The Wizard of Oz live again in this delightful fantasy.  A spell cast by the wicked witch sends Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Man back through time and into the western frontier of the 1880’s.  There they meet Wild Bill Hickock, Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley, and Billie the Kid who engages in a shootout with the Tin Man.  Dorothy and her friends share with the Old West some of the immortal qualities they acquired in Oz; such lessons as courage, intelligence, and heart!  The play ends with Dorothy finally returning to Kansas while her three friends remain in a frontier community where they have each gained positions of respect because of their ’very special’ assets.
