    "The unique stagecraft of Japan's Hikosen theatre group making use of magical space won widespread attention and delighted both children and adults" ── The Daily Journal, USA

    Whirl yourself into this magical re-telling of a classic adventure story!

    Dreamy Dorothy and her little dog Toto are swept away by a tornado to a fantastical faraway land where their landing accidentally crushes the Wicked Witch of the East! In a bid to return home, Dorothy travels to the Emerald City to seek help from the mysterious Wizard of Oz. She is joined on her journey by Scarecrow who needs a brain, Tin Woodman who wants a heart, and Cowardly Lion who desires courage. When the quartet reaches their destination, the Wizard of Oz has another big secret to reveal…

    Founded over 50 years ago, award-winning Theater Hikosen is one of Japan’s most popular “mask play” groups, touring nationally and internationally to great acclaim with its enchanting eduentertainment shows. In Hong Kong, its previous productions Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Peter Pan were instant box-office best-sellers. In The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, performers in exquisite masks and dazzling costumes conjure up the appealing characters. Enchanting staging, song and dance routines add to the spell-binding tale that both enthralls as well as encourages children to persevere in pursuit of their dreams.
