The iconic tale of Dorothy's adventures in the magical land of Oz return to the stage. Read More >

Developed from the ever popular 1939 MGM screenplay, The Wizard Of Oz is an enchanting adaptation of the all-time musical classic, totally reconceived for the stage by the award-winning creative team who delighted audiences of all ages with their recent London Palladium revival of The Sound of Music.

The Wizard Of Oz follows farm girl Dorothy as she is transported from her home in Kansas to the magical kingdom of Oz, where, with the help of a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, a Cowardly Lion and her dog Toto she has to find a way home. Can the wonderful Wizard Of Oz help her, or will the Wicked Witch of The West and her flying monkeys get their hands on her very special ruby slippers?

This new production of The Wizard Of Oz contains all the much-loved songs from the Oscar-winning movie score including Somewhere Over The Rainbow, Follow The Yellow Brick Road, If I Only Had A Heart and We’re Off To See The Wizard, plus some new songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber adding extra colour to the story as it moves from film to stage.

Sophie Evans, runner up in BBC1’s Saturday night talent show Over The Rainbow, currently plays Dorothy.
