Sometimes we forget where the wonderment of theatrical adventure comes from — a visit back in time with the Wizard of Oz will leave both you and your children with the feeling that “there’s no place like home.” The music score and delightful storyline is just as engaging today as it was in 1939.

Today’s children will be asking “why aren’t things in color”, which is an excellent conversation starter. While the Wicked Witch of the West is not nearly as scary as some of today’s villains, it can surely cause young children to get a bit nervous, so be sure to assure them this is a make-believe story. Watching Wizard of Oz is a venture back in time and will keep your whole family wondering just what is on the other side of the rainbow.
