Follow the Yellow Brick Road to the theatre this season, because one of the greatest tales ever told is touching down … with a brand new twist!

You know the story, but you’ve never seen it like this! With its winning combination of incredible music, lively dancing, outrageous costumes, audience participation, and of course, a dash of theatrical magic, this fractured fairy tale brims with humour, heart, and adventure. Join Dorothy as she journeys over the rainbow and makes her way to Oz with the help of some newfound friends.

Just like past hits Sleeping Beauty, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, and Snow White, this entertaining panto adaptation of the famed fable is a must-see holiday spectacle packed with family fun!

It was a fantastic show - full of fun, singing, laughs and dancing plus wonderful characters. Loved it completely along with two of my granddaughters and daughter-in-law in attendance.
