The memorable songs, the Technicolor scenery and the conventional themes of family, friends and finding oneself are just a few of the things that repeatedly draw people to this movie. This being the 70th anniversary year of the film, it is unsurprising that with it comes the onslaught of related products, including Burbank resident Julienne La Fleur?s book ? ?Lessons from Oz.?

That classic family film “The Wizard of Oz” turned 70 years old this year. The Stepping Stone Players just celebrated their 10-year anniversary. The movie brought four unlikely friends together that by the end of show felt like family. The Stepping Stone Players’ mission is to create a sense of community, by encouraging young and old alike to participate in every facet of their local live theater productions. It’s a natural combination — the story of a young girl named Dorothy who is helped by her friends in the Land of Oz, and a dedicated group of producers and performers who get together once a year to put on a great musical in the city of Glendale.
