SUMMARY

This isn't your ordinary Wizard of Oz show...

Emerald is a unique twist on The Wizard of Oz story that focuses on the life of the citizens of the Emerald City when they come into contact with the Wicked Witch. Though everything is not as it seems... Through the clever use of sound effects, voiceovers, some astonishing visuals, and a plot twist, this field show is a new take on one of the most popular stories of all time.
