I could be showing my age here but one of my favourite movies as a child was the Wizard of Oz. So much so that when my first baby was born I found myself singing the words to “Somewhere over the Rainbow” to her in the rocking chair (and remembered them word for word).
That’s just one of the reasons why I was thrilled to hear that the Gateway Theatre would be performing the Wizard of Oz this festive season. Starting Thursday, December 10 and running until January 3, 2016, this is a production you won’t want to miss.
Though “there’s no place like home,” the Gateway Theatre invite you to click your heels together and follow the yellow brick road to see The Wizard of Oz! For this magical go-around to the merry old land of Oz, the creative team (many of whom are back from last year’s award-winning Gateway Theatre holiday hit, Crazy for You) has reinterpreted the classic 1939 film with innovative staging and fresh choreography. It also features a culturally diverse cast that includes an enchanting crop of bright new talent alongside more established performers. Delight your little munchkins (or your inner munchkin) with a trip “Over the Rainbow” this holiday season, and rediscover this wonderful all-ages story with us.
Tickets are available now and will sell fast. All ages welcome!
