    i didnt take pics of the house....no that is the museum that is maintained for the oz fest....

    dorothy's house is always packed ....so no pics of that....

    i am always amazed...i have worked there 6 seasons and i am considered a newbie....one cast member has been there 16 years...we have kids who have gone from lollipops kids and muckins into adult characters....theater people come from all over the east coast to do this....mainly for the love of doing it

    FYI, for you OZ fans...

    I bought these books in 1957 (for $1 each) and got to share them with the rest of the world online about 40 years later
