About the Spirit of Oz - Magic Guaranteed!
What is the Spirit of Oz?
The Spirit of Oz is the premier troupe of Wizard of Oz characters in the United States! From intimate birthday parties to spectacular corporate events to multi-day festivals and fairs, we do it all!
Each year our company travels all over the country. We have been seen from NYC to LA and just about everywhere in between! Founded in 2005 as part of of the Chesterton Wizard of Oz Festival , the troupe grew to become an independent entity that has appeared at countless events such as The Indianapolis 500 Festival, The Indiana State Fair, Oz-Stravaganza in Chittenango, and even the premiere of The Wizard of Oz 3D in Hollywood!
The Spirit of Oz currently represents four major Oz events in the United States: The Mapleton Wizard of Oz Festival (Mapleton, IL), Wizard of Oz Days (New Hannibal, MO, & Chesterton, IN), and the Midwest Wizard of Oz Festival (Tinkley Park, IL).
Community service and charitable works are a key part of our business philosophy; therefore, the Spirit of Oz proudly takes part in charitable fundraisers and regularly appears at children's hospitals.
The Spirit of Oz also travels internationally.
