Poor Dorothy! Flung from her PoCo townhouse by an earthquake that had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH Tornado Resource Extraction Inc.’s suburban fracking, she fi nds herself in the magical Land of Oz. Pursued by the dastardly Wicked Witch of the West Side, Dorothy joins her friends Non-Binary-Tin-Person, Cowardly BC Lion, and somewhat spaced-out Scarecrow on a journey to the Emerald City, aka Olympic Village, in search of heart, brains, and courage.

Director Stephen Drover (East Van Panto: Hansel & Gretel) returns, along with Panto favourites Veda Hille, Dawn Petten, and Raugi Yu. Featuring Elbow Room Café: The Musical’s Christine Quintana!
