The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – Audiobook

Look what else has happened in lockdown!  Stage School staff and Diploma of Musical Theatre students have collaborated to create a family-friendly audiobook of The Wizard of Oz!  This isn’t quite the same story that you will be familiar with from the movie, so have a listen to Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman Lion and Toto’s adventures in the Land of Oz!

Originally written by L. Frank Baum.
Adapted by Robert Coates
Recorded by Stage School Australia
