WEFOUNDThe Wizard of Oz (Classic Pop Ups)


Miss E has, all of a sudden, really got into the whole ‘Princess’ thing, and with it the classic fairy tales. I must admit that I do enjoy the classic stories, and I remember my own parents reading those stories to me when I was young.

Mr D and Miss E have a couple of lovely cloth-bound classic stories books and I am looking forward to when they are able to really enjoy those longer chapter books with us. This time of year always sees us read that much more, you really can’t beat a cold afternoon wrapped up nice and warm in front of the woodburner sharing a good book. One that we have been starting to take a look at recently is The Wizard of Oz. A version of L. Frank Baum’s classic that has been adapted by Michel Laporte and illustrated by Olivier Latyk

Now, before I continue on, I must confess that I have never actually read the original version of the Wizard of Oz. When I was at school it was the school play one year, and not being much of a singer or actor, I was relegated to being a poppy. I am sure my parents still have the horrendous pictures to prove this somewhere, but it consisted of me being dressed head to toe in green with a large red frilly thing around my face. It was not the best experience and may have led to my reluctance to enjoy this classic tale.

This production of THE WIZARD OF OZ is a spectacular celebration of that classic 1939 MGM film. It’s a new, refreshed and lavish rendition of the beloved classic. Audiences young and old, seeing it for the first time or the fifth, will be dazzled by the brightly colored sets, charmed by its timeless score and enthralled with its breathtaking special effects. It truly is a wonderful show for the whole family. And whether it creates new memories or conjures them up from the past, everyone deserves to experience or relive the wonderful, whimsical and enduring story, THE WIZARD OF OZ.

Ripe with allegorical possibilities (relating to the political aspects of belle epoch industrialism in America, the hollowness of organized religion, the importance of domestic over foreign policy, and the unreliability of authority figures), “The Wizard of Oz” is a beloved children’s coming-of-age film that strikes a universal chord with all audiences.

The advent of Technicolor allowed the filmmakers to perform one of the greatest surprises in cinema history. After an extensive 20-minute first act, set in beige sepia-tone, Dorothy (played by Judy Garland ), an adopted farm girl from Kansas, steps into the primary-color-filled world of Oz. The startling effect of going from black-and-white to color still packs a punch.

Audiences at the time felt as if they had been jettisoned into a previously unknown realm of lush fantasy. No amount of theatrical staginess can detract from the dreamlike experience of watching Judy Garland’s wide-eyed Dorothy making fast friends with a “good” witch, a squeaky man made of tin, a floppy scarecrow, and a man in a lion suit. With the good witch’s instruction to “follow the yellow brick road, Dorothy teams up with the scarecrow, the tin man, and the lion on a search for a unique aspect that each one is missing. The “Cowardly Lion” (Bert Lahr) needs courage. The scarecrow (Ray Bolger) wants a brain, and the Tin Man desires a heart. Dorothy desperately wants to get back home.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz ( / ɑː z / ) is an American children's novel written by author L. Frank Baum and illustrated by W. W. Denslow , originally published by the George M. Hill Company in Chicago on May 17, 1900. It has since been reprinted on numerous occasions, most often under the title The Wizard of Oz , which is the title of the popular 1902 Broadway musical adaptation as well as the iconic 1939 musical film adaptation .

The story chronicles the adventures of a young farm girl named Dorothy in the magical Land of Oz , after she and her pet dog Toto are swept away from their Kansas home by a cyclone . [nb 1] The novel is one of the best-known stories in American literature and has been widely translated. The Library of Congress has declared it "America's greatest and best-loved homegrown fairytale". Its groundbreaking success and the success of the Broadway musical adapted from the novel led Baum to write thirteen additional Oz books that serve as official sequels to the first story.

Baum dedicated the book "to my good friend & comrade, My Wife", Maud Gage Baum . In January 1901, George M. Hill Company completed printing the first edition, a total of 10,000 copies, which quickly sold out. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz sold three million copies by the time it entered the public domain in 1956.
