(Somewhere Over the Rainbow is the prelude to this scene. The music fades out as Dorothy walks on stage) Dorothy: Oh, TOTO, I wish that I could go somewhere overthat rainbow. I just know that there is more to the world than this! I want to leave ________ and see the rest of the world! Do you suppose there is such a place, Toto? There must be. It's not a place you can get to by a boat or a train. It's far, far away -- behind the moon -- beyond the rain -(Tornado appears)

Hello there. Are you a good witch or a bad witch, which? (Startled and amazed by Glinda’s beauty) Oh, I am not a witch. Witches are old and ugly! (Munchkins laugh in the background) What was that?
The Munchkins. They are laughing because Iam a witch. I’m Glinda the good witch of the North. (Dorothy reacts… curtseys)
A Witch? But I never heard of a pretty witch before? I thought witches were mean with big noses.
(Laughing) That is because I am a good witch! Well, Welcome to OZ! The munchkins would like to thank you. It is all right you can come out now. Come out come out wherever you are and meet the younglady who fell from a star.

Thank me? But why? (Music)
M1: M3: M2:
We thank you very sweetly. For doing it so neatly. You killed her so completely.
Munchkins: So we thank you very sweetly. Ding Dong the witch is dead! Dorothy: M3:Dorothy: What do you mean? I haven’t killed anyone! Then how do you explain that? (Points) looks. (Dorothy looks. There is a pair of beautiful red ruby slippers sticking out from under the house) Oh no! She must have been beneath the house when we hit the ground. Glinda: The Munchkins are very happy because you killed the wicked Witch of the East. They would like to give you a present. M2:(Places slippers on Dorothy’s feet) How do they make you feel? Dorothy: M1: Magical! All hail Dorothy, our new queen! You will stay in Munchkinland won’t you? (Suddenly there is a loud noise. The Munchkins run and appears hide. The Wicked Witch of the West appears.)
(Dorothy holds Toto. Dorothy is frightened. She speaks with Glinda) I thought you said she was dead.
Glinda:That was her sister, the Wicked Witch of the East. This is the Wicked Witch of the West. And she's worse than the other one was.
Who killed my sister? Who killed the Witch of the East? Was it you? Answer me!
Leave her alone! You stay out of this! So it was you, was it? You killed her...didn't you?
No, No! It was an accident! I didn't mean to killanybody...Really I didn't!
Didn't mean it, eh? Accident, eh? Well, my little pretty, I can cause accidents, too!
Aren't you forgetting something? The ruby slippers? The slippers -- yes...the slippers! (Witch goes to the feet of her dead sister) They're gone! The ruby slippers! What have you done with them? Give them back to me, or I'll ---
It's too late!...
