Giveaway: Enter to Win Tickets to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz at Adventure Theatre!


Follow the yellow brick road to Adventure Theatre and its latest production, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The classic tale brought to life on stage at the Glen Echo theatre is getting such rave reviews its run has been extended through May 31. Even better, two KFDC readers have a chance to win a 4-pack of tickets to see it!

Based on the novel by L. Frank Baum and adapted by Jacqueline E. Lawton, the show is recommended for all ages. Running time is one hour with no intermission.

Life in Kansas has been a bit boring for Dorothy and her little dog Toto. Until one day, a cyclone swoops in and takes them โ€œover the rainbowโ€ to the wonderful and magical land of Oz. With the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, Dorothy sets off on the adventure of a lifetime down the yellow brick road to the Emerald City. These new friends brave witches, flying monkeys, and a Haunted Forest all to meet the Wizard of Oz, who promises to make their dreams come true.

Showtimes and tickets are available online — I recommend getting them in advance, since they often sell out before performances. For a glimpse of the show, visit Adventure Theatre’s Facebook page.

    My seven-year old daughter loves The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child. I gave birth to a baby boy last year and my daughter made it a point to memorize both stories. Now, she recites it to him every day, sometimes multiple times a day and we call him our Lil Gruff. Her birthday is next Wednesday, May 27 and her one wish is to see Washington, DC where mommy has to go on business often. So, we’re going to make the long trip together and I thought since she is also a fan of The Wizard of Oz, that this might be a fun birthday treat for her. Thanks for the opportunity!
