         formal portrait of L. Frank Baum
"Imagination has brought mankind through the Dark Ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity. Imagination has given us the steam engine, the telephone, the talking-machine, and the automobile, for these things had to be dreamed of before they became realities. So I believe that dreams – daydreams, you know, with your eyes wide open and your brain machinery whizzing – are likely to lead to the betterment of the world. The imaginative child will become the imaginative man or woman most apt to invent, and therefore to foster, civilization."

— L. Frank Baum

poster for 1913 stageplay 'The Tik-Tok Man of Oz'  Shaggy and Tik-Tok onstage, at Winkie Con 50 in 2014  "The Tik-Tok Man of Oz" musical stageplay [1913]
Baum wrote a stageplay originally based on "Ozma of Oz", but it was heavily revised and the name was changed to "The Tik-Tok Man of Oz". The story of the Shaggy Man's quest to rescue his brother from the Nome King was produced as a musical stageplay in 1913 by Oliver Morosco, with music by Louis F. Gottschalk; it was popular in Los Angeles and San Francisco, but panned by critics in Chicago; although the play was making money in Chicago, producer Morosco decided not to open on Broadway; after Chicago, the company took the play on the road for five months. A complete playscript does not exist, but fans cobbled together a version that was performed 'one time only' at Winkie Con 50 in San Diego, California in 2014.

"Land of Oz Park™ on Beech Mountain in North Carolina [open 1970-80, reopened recently]
Land of Oz Park™ opened in June 1970, with Debbie Reynolds officiating (accompanied by her then-little-known daughter, Carrie Fisher). Opening day brought in 20,000 visitors, and in its first summer the park had 400,000 visitors. One of the owners died at the age of 50 of bone cancer only six months before the park opened; more tragedy beset the park when a fire destroyed Emerald City and part of the museum collection, including dresses worn by Judy Garland in the 1939 movie. Visitor numbers started to dwindle and finally, after ten years in business, the Land of Oz closed its gates. Local residents tried to protect the property, but arson and vandals and severe weather took a toll. The park was revived a few years ago and is presently open at times during the Summer and Fall, with special accomodations available by appointment (for a fee). The park also holds a two-day festival each year in October.
