Hit musical “The Tik-Tok Man of Oz” by L. Frank Baum returns to San Diego, CA via KickStarter Clockwork Productions presents the vintage stage musical of THE TIK-TOK MAN OF OZ. This musical was written by L. Frank Baum, author of THE WIZARD OF OZ, as a sequel. It was successfully staged in Los Angeles in 1913, then toured the USA and Canada through 1914. A cast of engaging and diverse fantasy characters travels from the Land to Oz to the underground Metal Forest and over the rainbow in a fast-moving story sprinkled with magic and romance. Our production includes the complete surviving original score, which ranges in style from tin pan alley to operetta. This revival will be presented one night only, on Saturday, August 9, 2014, as the evening program of the 50th annual Winkie Con, the world’s longest running Oz event. The Regency Ballroom of the Town and Country Resort, 500 Hotel Circle North, San Diego, California, will be turned into a theater to present the show.
