Step down the yellow brick road and into The Wizard of Oz, a beloved classic. A teenage girl named Dorothy lives on a farm in dreary Kansas with her Uncle Henry and Aunt Em dreaming of faraway places. One day the farmhouse, with Dorothy inside, is swept off by a tornado to Munchkin land in the Land of Oz. In order to return home Dorothy has to travel to the Emerald City to ask the great Wizard of Oz for his help. But it’s not an easy journey.
The Wicked Witch of the West is out for revenge after Dorothy’s house landed on and killed her sister. Dorothy forms an unconventional alliance with a scarecrow, a lion and a tin woodman and together they reach the Emerald City, where the wizard declares he will only help them after they kill the Wicked Witch of the West. And it’ll take more than just courage to defeat her!
This colourful and fanciful adaptation never ceases to delight, filled with tales of love, friendship and wit! With fan favourites like “Over The Rainbow”, “Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead”, and “Follow the yellow brick road” it’ll be hard to keep viewers in their seats.
