YOUTH

Stage Door Youth is dedicated to developing life skills in children and teens through affordable theater experiences that educate, entertain, and enrich the lives of those on the stage and in the audience. Our goals include: providing affordable educational theater experiences; fostering teamwork, commitment, self-esteem, and creativity; inspiring an appreciation of the arts while developing leadership qualities and self confidence; and bringing cultural enrichment to children and teens throughout the community.

When Dorothy drops into the Land of Oz, only one thing is certain: she's got to find a way back to Kansas. A funny and fast-paced journey down the yellow brick road ensues, as Dorothy and her new friends travel to the fabled Emerald City to meet the Great Oz. When Oz demands a steep price for sending her home, a perilous new adventure begins. This imaginative adaptation captures the heart of L. Frank Baum's classic tale.
