A wicked witch, a good witch, and a bumbling showman: The Wizard of Oz returns!
In our last episode (Midnight Audio Theatre #336), we introduced you to young Dorothy Gale – and her little dog, too. Swept up by a Kansas twister, Dorothy found herself in the magical land of Oz, where she had an alarming encounter with the Witches of the West and South, a song and dance with the Munchkins, and made friends with the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion. This episode is devoted to the rest of the story, as she and her intrepid trio continue their adventures while finding a way for Dorothy to get back home.
