The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz Poster


Thanks to a tornado, Dorothy and Toto find themselves in the Wonderful Land Of Oz, accompanied by Aunt Em and her farmhand, Skeeter. There they encounter all the famous characters including Scarecrow, Tinman and cowardly Lion.
The wicked Witch of the West discovers that Dorothy now wears the magic ruby wellies, and sets out to obtain them by fair means or foul. This version includes characters who appear in the original book, but not in the classic MGM film. It follows the original storyline faithfully, but includes some extra panto-style characters.
A sparkling pantomime that truly captures the magic of the original story.
