This is our Christmas treat for everyone this year! The Wizard of Oz is a quintessential and endearing story that has touched countless people all over the world during the past 100 years. After the huge success of the Lion King, Dream Maker Productions is proud to present a new twist on the classic story.
The show recaptures the wonder and timeless story of Dorothy (Achsannah Taylor) who is swept away by a twister and carried off to the colourful land of the Munchkins, where she meets The Scarecrow (Hailey Smith), The Tin Man (Durham Lemoyre) and The Cowardly Lion (Teagan Mcdermid). Together they set off to find the Wizard in the Emerald City of Oz and battle the Wicked Witch of the West. When they arrive at the city, everyone is in full swing for the Christmas celebrations. But the witch (Lila St-Onge) is trying to do whatever she can to spoil Dorothy’s plan to return home. There are many lessons learnt in the story but perhaps the most important is that of bravery, love, devotion and the true meaning of friendship. But most of all, this show will make you laugh!
“The nice thing about this show is that the audience takes part in the story. So be prepared to cheer on your favorite character and even boo the witch. This very interactive show has fantastic special effects that will impress everyone,” states Director Taylor Smith. “The show has some of the best young actors around and the theatre’s new lighting system is second to none. It will add amazing effects to this show.”
