by Ken Bradbury

(Five characters: Dorothy, Tinman, Lion, Witch, and Max. Dorothy should probably be played by a girl, but the other characters can be portrayed by actors of either gender.)

DOROTHY: (entering) Come on! Come on! Hurry up!

TINMAN: (entering with Lion, both struggling to put on imaginary costumes) I’m coming! I’m coming!

LION: This thing itches!

DOROTHY: The show starts in five minutes! Come on, guys.

TINMAN: This show drives me crazy. Who’s idea was it to do The Wizard of Oz?

DOROTHY: My mom’s. She’s the director and she picks the shows, and …

LION: … and she wanted her daughter to play Dorothy.

DOROTHY: You got a problem with that? Who else has my talent?

TINMAN: But why do I have to be the Tin Man? This silver paint is gonna ruin my beautiful complexion.

LION: You oughta be wearing this lion outfit. Where’d they get this thing?

DOROTHY: I think it’s the rug out of the nurse’s office.

LION: Then that’s why I’m itching. It’s got diseases all over it.

DOROTHY: The orchestra’s starting!

MAX: (running in) You guys ready? We’ve got a full house tonight! I mean the place is just packed!

LION: How am I supposed to scratch in front of 300 people? (to Tin Man) Will you scratch me if I start itching?

TINMAN: I can’t. I’ve got silver paint all over my hands.

MAX: So? You ready?

DOROTHY: Yeah … as soon as we get …(looks around) Where’s Toto?

MAX: Toto?

DOROTHY: My dog! Where’d you put Toto?

MAX: (going to look in an imaginary cage) He was right … Oh, no.


MAX: His cage is open. He got out. He’s escaped.

LION: Lucky dog.
