The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Radio Theatre)

producer: The Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air

PRX Description:¬† “The Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air has produced six of the OZ books by L. Frank Baum in elaborate radio theatre productions with lush music scores, thousands of sound effects, and a full cast. In THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ, Dorothy is carried by cyclone to the land of Oz where the exciting adventure begins.

Based on the book, and not the classic MGM motion picture, the story takes some twist and turns that might surprise listeners who never read the original novel. After 106 years since it first appeared, THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ has proven itself many times over, to be a true, timeless classic. ”
