“The Marvelous Land of Oz”

Nov. 27-Jan. 3
Children’s Museum of Indianapolis

Twist endings weren’t created by O. Henry or M. Night Shyamalan. In fact, fellow initialed writer L. Frank Baum included one in “The Marvelous Land of Oz,” the first sequel to his now-iconic story.

I won’t give it away, but I will tell you that the story concerns Tip, a kid who follows in Dorothy’s footsteps, not only meeting the likes of the Scarecrow and Tin Man but also such new characters as Jack Pumpkinhead while facing off against Gen. Jinjur and her all-girl army. This week, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis launches its 40-minute production of the story, which is offered free (with museum admission) at its Lilly Theatre.
