The St. James’ Episcopal School Performing Arts Program presented a one-night engagement of The Wizard of Oz, adapted for St. James’ by director John Staley, performed at the Gallery Theater at the Barnsdall Art Park in Los Angeles on November 22, 2013.
When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage. The Wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West to earn his help.
