The Wizard of Oz…And Other Strange Tales of the American West

Presented by Rick Hague
The “Wizard of Oz” is a timeless children’s tale made famous in the 1939 Judy Garland movie – musical. “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” has enriched generations of children.  But was there more to this classic tale?  It was written just after a tumultuous period in American history – the late 19th century – by a celebrated Renaissance-man, author, playwright, and father.  Come learn what was “behind the rainbow” and see if you sing a different tune as a result.
