Synopsis

When a lightning strike suddenly brings the Scarecrow to life, he sets out on an elaborate quest for fame, valor, and romance (with a fickle broom). The scarecrow is joined by a sharp-witted peasant boy as they fight hunger, the greedy Buffalonis and their poison factory, and theatre owners who don’t recognize the importance of a prop as they make their way back home to Spring Valley. The contrary Scarecrow may argue with stubborn road signs along the way, but he would give his servant boy the coat off his back with his back still attached.

“Many is the exit that the Scarecrow undertakes shouting, “Adventure!” And you can’t help but want to follow him.” -Pioneer Press

The Scarecrow and His Servant is such an enchantment.” – Star Tribune
