L. Frank Baum’s beloved classic comes to life as never before in this unabridged production of The Wizard of Oz. Read by veteran actor, storyteller, and author Jon Koons, this tour de force performance includes riveting drama, fun and fancy, plus a plethora of whimsical and often familiar voices for all forty-three characters that appear in the book, along with Dorothy, charmingly voiced by actress Danielle Manente. The performances are enhanced with a lush soundscape of music and effects by audio wizard Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev), and the vocal support of him and Lorie Kellogg.
This Oz is an epic presentation of the “modern fairy tale” masterpiece that Baum imagined.
Bonus tracks include “If I Only Had a Brain” from the MGM film, sung by Jon Koons; and a discussion with Jon and Danielle.
“If I Only Had a Brain” arranged and performed by Mikki Ryan Koons on Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Flute, and Piccolo. Sung by Jon Koons.
