I'm Off to See the Wizard, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
THE WIZARD OF OZ What a wonderful story! What a great event this will be for kids young and old! Who could ever forget Judy Garland as Dorothy in the original film?

Basically, the story is about a tornado which rips through Kansas, and Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away to the magical land of Oz. They go down the Yellow Brick Road to get to the Emerald City and en route they meet the Wizard, Scarecrow, Tin Man and a fearful Lion. The story evolves around this and there is of course, a witch.
The movie has been made many times, and the first movie was released in April of 1940, and this is one story that has weathered the ages, and is still extremely popular, and a wonderful fantasy story for all ages.

The magic of this story can be seen at the Karrinyup Shopping Centre during the April 2017 school holidays.
