Like so many other girls her age, little Dorothy Gale of Kansas dreams of what lies over the rainbow. One day, a twister hits her farm and carries her away over the rainbow to another world.
Come join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man and Toto as they travel the universe of Dorothy’s imagination.
