This re-telling of the original story stays true to the plot - with just a small twist at the end. Oh, and anyone wishing to play the original 'delightfully wholesome' Dorothy may be in for a bit of a shock!
There is also a Christmas version of this class play or assembly - with, as you would expect, a few Xmas additions! This is available as a separate purchase.

Wicked Witch: Now. Where have that little gang of misfits got to? I don’t suppose anyone would miss them!
Narrator: Whatever do you mean, ma’am? ‘Miss them’?
Wicked Witch: Oh, haven’t you heard? I’m about to wipe them off the face of Oz! Good riddance I say!
Narrator: (Gasping) You what? But you can’t!
Wicked Witch: Oh really? Just watch me!
(Enter Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Woodman and Cowardly Lion)
Wicked Witch: Ah here they all are! Right on cue! Like lambs to the slaughter!
(Sound of wolves howling)
Wicked Witch: Bring on the wolves!
(Enter wolves – who are then all ‘knocked out’ by Tin Woodman)
(Whole cast cheers, as Tin Woodman waves his axe triumphantly)
(Exit wolves, rubbing their heads)
Wicked Witch: (To Tin Woodman) Hey! That’s no way to treat my pets! I’ll report you to the RSPCA!
(Sound of Crows ‘cawing’)
Wicked Witch: Bring on the crows!
(Enter crows. Scarecrow pulls a silly face and they all retreat in terror)
(Whole cast cheers, as Scarecrow struts up and down triumphantly)
Wicked Witch: Hey! What happened to my crows?
Narrator: (Pointing to Scarecrow) Well, he is a scarecrow, remember?
(Wicked Witch stamps her foot in disgust)
(Sound of bees buzzing)
Wicked Witch: Bring on the black bees!
(Enter bees. Each ‘stings’ Tin Woodman then ‘drops down dead’)
(Whole cast cheers as Tin Woodman struts around victoriously)
Wicked Witch: (Shrieking) Now what? What has happened to my black bees?
Narrator: Er, I think you’ll find they just all died. Isn’t that what bees do, once they have stung?
Wicked Witch: (Shaking fist) Drat! And double drat! Why didn’t I think of that?
(Sound of marching feet)
Wicked Witch: Bring on my Winkie Soldiers!
(Enter Winkie Soldiers, marching purposefully towards ‘the group’)
(Lion lets out a huge roar and the soldiers all panic and run away in terror)
(Whole cast cheers as Cowardly Lion struts around triumphantly)
