AT THE FARM
Narrator: Dorothy was a little girl who lived in a farm in Kansas with her uncle Henry, her aunt Em, and a little black dog called Toto. One day Dorothy was playing outside with her dog, when her uncle said.
Uncle Henry: A tornado is coming!
Narrator: Aunt Em went to the door, and when she saw the dark sky she knew they were in danger.
Aunt Em: Dorothy! Come inside and go to the basement!
Narrator: Toto and Dorothy went inside, but Toto got scared and hid under the bed, while aunt Em opened the basement door and went inside. Meanwhile, Dorothy tried to get Toto out from under the bed.
Dorothy: Toto, Toto come here!
Narrator: Suddenly the house started to shake. Dorothy fell down to the floor, and Toto jumped into her arms. The house started to spin a few times, and to raise slowly into the air like a balloon, and they were taken miles and miles away from their home. Dorothy decided to calm down. She went to her bed, closed her eyes, and fell asleep. After a few hours, the house stopped spinning, and she was awaken by a loud noise.
AT AN UNKNOWN PLACE
Dorothy: What happened? The house is not moving anymore… Come Toto, let’s go outside.
Narrator: When she went outside she was astonished.
Dorothy: Oh, this place is so beautiful!
Narrator: Then some people came to her.
North Witch: Welcome to our country. We want to thank you for destroying the Evil Witch.
Dorothy: I haven’t destroyed anybody.
Woman 1: Well, your house did. Look over there!
Narrator: Under the house Dorothy could see a pair of legs with a pair of beautiful red shoes.
Dorothy: Oh no! What can we do?
North Witch: There’s nothing we can do.
Dorothy: But… who was she?
Man 1: She was the East Evil Witch. She kept prisoners the people from this city. They were her slaves day and night, and now they are free.
Dorothy: And who are you?
North Witch: I am the North Witch.
Dorothy: Are you a real witch?
North Witch: Of course. But I am a good witch, but I am not as powerful as the Evil Witch was.
Woman 2: Look over there?
Man 2: Her feet are gone!
Woman 1: She left only her red shoes.
North Witch: She was so old that her feet dried with the sun. The shoes are yours…you can use them.
Narrator: Then she took the shoes and gave them to Dorothy, who put them on.
Dorothy: I want to go home. Can you show me the way to Kansas?
North Witch: To the East and to the South there are great deserts and nobody dares to cross them.
Man 1: And to the West there´s an evil witch. If you go there, you would be her slave.
North Witch: I live North, where there’s a great desert. So… we can’t help you.
Narrator: Dorothy started to cry.
North Witch: But.. what is your name, dear?
Dorothy: My name is Dorothy, and this is Toto.
Narrator: Suddenly the Witch of the West appeared, and said to Dorothy.
Witch of The West: What have you done! You destroyed my sister!
Narrator: Then the North Witch said.
North Witch: Get away from her! You can´t harm her!
Witch of the West: I want my sister’s shoes! Give them to me!
North Witch: Now they belong to her! Go away!
Witch of the West: I will leave… but I’ll find you later… I promise! Ha, ha, ha, ha
Narrator: And the Witch of the West disappeared.
Narrator: Then the North Witch said to Dorothy.
North Witch: You must go to Emerald City. The Wizard of Oz might help you.
Dorothy: Where is that city?
North Witch: It’s in the middle of the country. The Wizard of Oz rules the city.
Dorothy: Is he a good man?
North Witch: He’s a good wizard, but I have never seen him.
Dorothy: How can I get to that city?
North Witch: Just follow the yellow brick road.
Woman 1: Follow the yellow brick road.
Woman 2: Follow the yellow brick road.
Man 1: Follow the yellow brick road.
Man 2: Follow the yellow brick road.
Dorothy: Are you coming with me?
Good Witch: No, I can’t. When you get to Oz, tell him your story and ask for help.
Narrator: And the Good Witch disappeared.
Dorothy: Oh, she’s gone. Toto, we have to go.
Narrator: And Dorothy and Toto started walking through the yellow brick road. After a while they heard someone talking.
Scarecrow: I need a brain! I need a brain!
Dorothy: Did you hear that, Toto? Who is talking?
Scarecrow: It´s me. Look this way.
Narrator: Then Dorothy saw a big corn field, where there was a Scarecrow talking to her.
Dorothy: Did you say that you need a brain?
Scarecrow: Yes, I only have straw.
Dorothy: And, how can you talk?
Scarecrow: I don’t know.
Dorothy: Well, I cannot get you a brain, but if you come with me to visit the Wizard of Oz, I am sure he will give you a brain.
Scarecrow: I will go with you.
Narrator: So Dorothy, Toto and the Scarecrow kept walking. After a while they saw a Tin Man beside the road.
Tin Man: Oil can! oil can!
Dorothy: Oil can?
Scarecrow: I think he´s trying to say that he wants some oil.
Dorothy: Look, there´s an oil can in the floor. Maybe that’s what he wants.
Scarecrow: Where do you want me to put the oil?
Tin Man: In my chin… in my chin.
Scarecrow: Here.. I´ll put some drops in your chin.
Tin Man: Oh now I can talk again! But I need some in my arms, too.
Scarecrow: Let me put some in your arms.
Tin Man: I also need oil in my legs and in my feet.
Dorothy: Let me put some, too.
Tin Man: Perfect! Now I can talk and move again. Now my problem is that I don’t have a heart.
Dorothy: You don’t have a heart?
Tin Man: No, I want a heart. I want to feel emotions… I want to know what love is.
Dorothy: Well, come with us then. We are going to see the Wizard of Oz, he will help us!
Narrator: And Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man continued their journey through the yellow brick road. After a few hours, Toto started barking.
Dorothy: Toto, stop barking!
Toto: Arf! Arf! Arf!
Narrator: A scared Lion was hiding behind the bushes beside the road.
Dorothy: Come here Lion. Toto will not harm you.
Narrator: The Lion came out from his hiding place. He was crying.
Dorothy: But… why are you crying?
Lion: I am crying because I wished that I had courage. I was scared with your little dog.
Dorothy: I know. I don’t understand. We Know that you are the king of the jungle.
Lion: I know.
Tin Man: Why don’t you come with us to visit the Wizard of Oz. Maybe he can also help you!
Lion: Yes, I need courage, and I want to get it. Let´s go!
Narrator: So everybody decided to go visit the Wizard of Oz hoping to make their wishes come true. When they finally arrived a guard opened the door.
AT THE PALACE
Guard: What do you want? Go away, no one is allowed to get even near the palace.
Dorothy: Oh, please open the door. We have come to look for the Wizard of Oz. He´s the only one who can help us.
Guard: Who sent you here?
Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin man, Lion: The North Witch… look at her shoes!
Narrator: The Guard looked at the shoes, and then he said.
Guard: Let me see what I can do. Wait here!
Narrator: After a while the guard finally opened the door.
Guard: Come in. Go straight through the hall, then turn to the right. You will find a red door, open it, and there you will find the Wizard.
Dorothy: Oh, thank you.
Narrator: They entered the palace, went through the long hall, then they got to the red door; they opened it, and as soon as they were inside the Wizard appeared behind a big mirror that was in the wall.
Wizard: What do you want! How do you dare to come to my palace and bother me! I hope it is important what you have to say, otherwise you will regret it.
Dorothy: Oh, no..
Lion: Please Wizard…
Scarecrow: What we have to say..
Tin Man: It´s really important!
Wizard: Talk then. I am wasting my time.
Narrator: And they explained what they needed.
Wizard: Very well. I will help you, but with one condition. First you have to destroy the most cruel witch in the country… the Witch of the West… then your problems will be solved.
Tin Man: How?
Wizard: When you destroy the witch…You will get your brain… and you will get courage… and you will have your heart!
Dorothy: And me?
Wizard: Then, and only then, the North Witch will tell you how you can go home. Now… go!
Narrator: They left the palace and started their journey looking for the evil witch. After a long walk they arrived to a beautiful garden.
Dorothy: Oh, this garden is so beautiful… and those flowers are so pretty… and the smell is so fragrant… that I really want to sleep.
Narrator: And Dorothy fell asleep.
Lion: Me too… I feel so relax….. (falls asleep)
Tin Man: Ohh, I don’t even feel my arms… I am so sleepy…. (falls asleep)
Scarecrow: No! You can´t go to sleep now. We have things to do… (falls asleep)
Narrator: While they were sleeping they were captured by some evil flying monkeys that were sent by the Witch of the West. After a few hours they woke up.
AT THE WEST WITCH´S PALACE
Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion: Where are we?
Witch of the West: You are in my palace! And now… take off my sister’s shoes!
Dorothy: No! I will not give them to you!
Witch of the West: I am warning you! …If you don’t give me the shoes you will never see the light of day again! Ha, ha, ha, ha
Scarecrow: Let’s get her, that’s what we are here for!
Witch of the West: Ha, ha, ha, you will be easily destroyed…. I cast a spell on you…. tricky tash, tricky mash, turn this piece of straw into ash! Burn!
Dorothy: Stop it!
Narrator: Then Dorothy saw a bucket of water that was on the floor, took it, and threw it at the burning scarecrow, but some of the water spilled the witch.
Witch of the West: No! No! What have you done, I am melting… melting… mel…. Oh, oh,oh…
Narrator: Dorothy didn’t know that water would make the witch disappeared.
Tin Man: Dorothy, you destroyed her!
Dorothy: Now that we have destroyed the evil witch, we will have what we need. Scarecrow will get his brain!
Scarecrow: And the Tin Man will get his heart!
Tin Man: And the Lion will have courage!
Dorothy: And me? How can I go home?
Narrator: Suddenly the North Witch appeared.
Dorothy: Oh, Good Witch, please help me! Now everybody has what they wished for, except me. Help me go home, please.
North Witch: Oh Dorothy, if you only knew! The power is inside you. It has been inside you all along. The shoes that you are wearing can take you anywhere you wish to go.
Dorothy: But… how can my shoes take me home?
North Witch: All you have to do is tap your heels together three times, and say to yourself: ” There’s no place like home”… “There’s no place like home”… ”There’s no place like home”.
Dorothy: Oh, but first I have to say goodbye to my friends. Oh, my good friends I will miss you so much!
Scarecrow: I will miss you too. And thanks to you my brain will help me think of you and never forget you.
Tin Man: And me, I will keep you in my heart.
Lion: And I will always have courage to fight in your name.
North Witch: Are you ready?
North Witch: Now close your eyes and do as I told you.
Dorothy: There’s no place like home… There’s no place like home… There’s no place like home.
AT THE FARM
Narrator: And Dorothy woke up in her bed.
Dorothy: Where am I?
Uncle Henry : You’re home!
Dorothy: I am home! It was all a dream. Oh, dear uncle and aunt… I love you so much… I thought I would never see you again.
Uncle Henry and Aunt Em: (hugging Dorothy) We love you too!
