Following over 3,000 performances internationally, the always fun and entertaining ‘The Wizard of Oz Show’ is coming to local venues this September/October school holidays.

Click your heels together and get ready to follow a yellow brick road full of fun, adventure and wacky characters.

Kids can rap with the Tinman, roar like a Lion, wake up sleepy Shakey the Scarecrow and dance with Dorothy in this interactive, new adaptation of America’s best-loved fairytale.

This show is no ‘sit down and watch’ affair, the kids are even invited to come dressed as their favourite characters to celebrate their visit to the Wizard in this highly interactive performance.

Live action comes together with 3D animation on a screen too, and there are plenty of catchy tunes and loads of interactive fun in this ‘toto-ally Oz-some’ treat ideal for two to eight-year-olds.

The cast in ‘The Wizard of Oz Show’ has even been honoured to perform with and for the last living cast members from the 1939 classic starring Judy Garland and other ‘Oz’ royalty.

“I’ve seen lots of Oz productions but this one was truly extraordinary,” said Margaret Pellegrini, one of the last living Munchkins from the 1939 movie.

Produced by Sydney-based company Youngstars2.com, ‘The Wizard of Oz Show’ is about more than giving kids a good time, it spreads a message of hope and self-esteem to the young by supporting children in need. The audience is requested to bring along a toy or book for the show’s Children’s Hospital Toy Appeal.

‘The Wizard of Oz Show’ plays at Rooty Hill RSL on Tuesday, September 25 at 11am; Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on Tuesday, September 25 at 3.30pm; and St Marys Leagues on Wednesday, October 3 at 10.30am.
