Holiday Show – Return to Oz

Nov. 29 – Dec. 22, 2019

Welcome to the Dell’Arte Company’s annual Holiday Show tour! Now in its 39th year, we’re ushering in the festive season with an adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

A few years after her visit, Dorothy returns to Oz to discover that the land she loves is in ruins. She must harness her wits, courage, and the power of her imagination to thwart the unstoppable Nome King who now wears the red ruby slippers.

Accompanied by her old friend the Scarecrow and a sassy chicken named Billina, the friends embark on an adventure to save the Tin Man, the Lion, and all that is beautiful in Oz before it’s too late.

Harnessing our trademark physical-comic performance style, this Holiday Show will play for more than 7,000 attendees in Humboldt, Mendocino and Del Norte counties – for free – from Thanksgiving to Christmas. This is family theatre at its best.
