Ain't no place like home
Join us on our uniquely Nottingham yellow brick road to meet Scarecrow, Dorothy, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion in this musical sensation.
Following the success of Sweeney Todd, Little Shop of Horrors and Last year's Oh What a Lovely War, Director Martin Berry brings his trademark flair - and maybe some flares as well - to this thrilling musical, relocating the world famous story of Oz to downtown Nottingham in the early 70s, when Northern Soul was the greatest dance, music and style craze in the land.
Grab your ruby sneakers, polish off those dance moves, click your heels three times and come and join us for The Wizard of Oz as you have never seen it before. An amateur production by arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
There is also a Public Dress Rehearsal 7.30pm Monday 13 July - tickets £10.50
Hear from one of the stars of the show, Nancy the tortoise who plays Toto, in our exclusive interview.
