Belvuria. Four years in the making, come see Witch Key, a Prince's

Who hasn't wanted to journey down the yellow brick road of the
Wizard of OZ. In 2003 the Olde World Puppet Theatre did just that,
with lifesize body puppets set to Meco's disco rock opera score.
And we have plans to visit OZ once again. There are new plans afoot
to revisit this unique story for the stage, setting the entire production
way down in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. New music, new
puppets and an entirely new approach are being planned.
