The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

The show constantly challenges us as to what we will accept from a stage performance and each time proves the point and says, ‘ See we told you so’. How brilliant is that?

Le Navet Bete, in co-production with Barbican Theatre Plymouth, presents

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Join Dorothy and Toto on their fantastical and downright chaotic travels along the Road of Yellow Bricks meeting the usual (sort of) suspects along the way - an unbelievably idiotic Scarecrow, a Tin Man straight from under the Iron Curtain and a Lion whose West-End dreams seem just Over The Rainbow - as well as some characters you might not expect…

Will they make it to the Emerald City or will the Mighty Oz and his powerful Green Army stop them in their tracks? Will Shirley the Wicked Witch of the West be slightly more 'wicked' than you could ever imagine? Will a squadron of Winged Monkeys end up in your lap?

Directed by Mark Laville, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a show for the whole family to enjoy. Prepare yourselves for a physical comedy bonanza full of ridiculous characters, live music and song, hilarious dances, utter stupidity and much more.

This really is a long, long way from Kansas...

This show has been supported by Arts Council England.
