The Wizard of Oz

The acclaimed Yvonne Arnaud Youth Theatre returns to the Main Stage with a dazzling production of the timeless classic The Wizard of Oz.

When a tornado rips its way through Dorothy’s Kansas farm, she finds herself whisked away with her dog Toto, to the wonderful Land of Oz. All alone in this enchanted world of wild forests, munchkins, witches and wizards, they set off on a magical journey, wondering how they will ever get home. Along the way, they meet the Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Cowardly Lion, who join Dorothy in her quest to find the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Join them on the yellow brick road for this unforgettable story that captures the hearts of children and the child in all of us…

The Youth Theatre has been winning high praise for its innovative and energetic shows on the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre’s main stage for 23 years, most recently with Oliver!, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Charlotte’s Web and Peter Pan.
