You’re not in Kansas anymore. This re-imagined production of The Wizard of Oz by Mercury Players Theatre puts a Sconnie twist on the classic story. Dorothy gets whisked away from a Wisconsin Dells waterpark and faces off against the Wicked Witch of West Towne with the help of the good Witch of Up North. This family-friendly comedy is written as British panto-style theater, which means men dress as women, women dress as men and audience participation is encouraged. ALSO: Saturday (7 pm), Sunday (2 pm) and Wednesday-Thursday (7 pm), Dec. 17-18 & 21-22. Through Dec. 30.
