The Windham Theatre Guild presents "The Wizard of Oz," which opens on July 20 at the Burton Leavitt Theatre in Willimantic. The stage version has more of the storyline from the original book than was seen in the Judy Garland film...but all of the well-known characters are there. Great fun for the whole family.
