“A place so strange and magnificent, it was like nothing Dorothy had ever seen before. A country of marvellous beauty.”
Written by Mike Akers. Directed by Owen Calvert-Lyons & David Whitney.
After a rare and inexplicable cyclone hits Suffolk (Stowmarket to be precise), Dorothy and her dog Toto find themselves transported to the mysterious land of Oz. If they are ever going to find their way home, they must follow the yellow brick road in search of a powerful wizard, The Great Oz. On the way, they meet a host of weird and wonderful creatures: Lion, Scarecrow, Tin Man, Witches, and Munchkins, oh my!
Mike Akers’ new adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s much-loved story will take you on a magical adventure to another world and remind you that there’s no place like home.
Following the success of last year’s The Secret Garden, our summer production returns with this classic tale retold by professional actors and members of our local community aged 8-80! The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a play with songs, featuring new music by David Lewington and choreography by Sunny Saini so you can expect dancing, singing, and all your favourite characters!
