MPAA Rating:

In this 1976 Australian retelling of The Wizard of Oz, two teens are dancing at a rural gathering when the girl Dorothy is knocked unconscious. In her delirium, she imagines she is hitchhiking to attend the final concert of a rock star known as “The Wizard”. All the characters from the classic children’s tale appear on her journey, transformed into modern-day Australian characters. The Scarecrow is a somewhat dim-witted surfer-lad, a cowardly biker is, of course, the Cowardly Lion, and so on. This musical is not designed for younger children, and is instead suitable for mature teens and young adults.
