About The Spirit of Oz


The Spirit of Oz

The Spirit of Oz is the premier troupe of Wizard of Oz characters in the United States since 2005!  Originally part of the Chesterton Wizard of Oz Festival, the troupe grew to become an independent entity in 2009. Our characters have traveled across the country from NYC to LA and just about everywhere in between. We even travel internationally!

Our team has been trusted by some of the biggest names in entertainment, and our characters have appeared at state and county fairs, museums, sporting events, and even the 75th anniversary party and Hollywood premier of The Wizard of Oz 3D  hosted by Warner Bros. Entertainment!

And we don't just specialize in big events. We also do birthday parties and intimate affairs. No matter the size of your event, our team is ready to help you make it a success! Magic guaranteed!

The Spirit of Oz currently represents the official characters of the Midwest's biggest Oz event, The Illinois Oz Festival (Mapleton, IL), and Harvest Tyme Farm Park's Wizard of Oz Weekend (Lowell, IN). In the past we served as official characters for two now defunct festivals: The Chesterton (Indiana) Wizard of Oz Festival (the largest in the world during its run) and The Midwest Wizard of Oz Fest (Tinley Park, IL). 

Our company is family owned and based out of Indianapolis, Indiana.


The Spirit of Oz Difference

The Spirit of Oz offers so much more than photo opportunities.  Our characters sing and dance, host activities, and just about anything else you can dream up!  We strive to make our characters a fully-integrated part of each and every event we do.  Our team works with yours to craft a tailored experience unlike any other.

We cast only experienced, professional actors who are knowledgeable and dedicated to providing top-notch performances. All of our characters wear exquisitely crafted costumes handmade by our wardrobe team.  We also use theatrical makeup techniques to present a character that is as authentic as possible.
