Follow the yellow brick road (aka 27th St.) to the McKittrick Hotel this Saturday night and be prepared to enter a scene straight out of The Wizard of Oz.

The hotel behind the immersive theater experience Sleep No More invites you to pass through the Emerald Gates and enter a lurid, fully realized Oz, complete with costumed guests, wild performers and flowing champagne.

Costumes are mandatory at the dance party, but with a range of choices that include Tin Man, Flying Monkey and Auntie Em, you’ll be able to find a look that fits as snug as a pair of ruby slippers.

The party is part of the hotel's "Supercinema" series which turns famous films into fully-realized events. Past outings have found inspiration in Romeo + Juliet, James Bond and Alice in Wonderland.

This special Pride edition on Saturday will benefit Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund and Everytown for Gun Safety. Orlando-based drag queen Detox will also be making a special appearance.

Watch a trailer for the party below and buy tickets here.
