Dates

8 February - 23 February 2013

Click your heels together and join Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, Dorothy and her little dog Toto, as they journey through the magical land of Oz to meet the Wizard and obtain their heart’s desires. Watch out for the Wicked Witch of the West and her winged monkeys as you rediscover the real story of Oz in this fantastic musical treat for all the family.

The Wizard of Oz is an enchanting adaptation of the all time classic, totally re-conceived for the stage by the creative team that delighted audiences of all ages with their previous productions of Oliver and Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Developed from the ever popular MGM screenplay this new pro-am production contains all the much-loved songs from the Oscar winning movie score like “Over the Rainbow” and “Follow The Yellow Brick Road”, all the favourite characters and iconic moments with full stage production and colourful costumes.

Starring Jimmy Rees (Jimmy Giggle on ABC’s Giggle & Hoot) as The Scarecrow, Laura Murphy (Sparkles The Fairy on Channel 9′s Magical Tales) as Dorothy, Helpmann Award winning musical theatre performer Luke Joslin (Avenue Q, Annie, Dr Zhivago) as The Tinman, and multi-Mo Award winner Adam Scicluna as The Lion, THE WIZARD OF OZ is a night at theatre that you will never forget.

Follow the yellow brick road over the rainbow and into Riverside for what promises to be a magical night at the theatre!
