Click your heels and head to the London Palladium in summer 2023 for blockbuster show The Wizard of Oz. A brand new production of the beloved musical brings the vibrant world of the MGM film to life on stage in a show the entire family will delight in.
Featuring iconic songs from the film including “Over The Rainbow”, “Follow The Yellow Brick Road” and “We’re Off To See The Wizard”, The Wizard of Oz musical is the magical story we all know and love. When Dorothy and Toto are swept away from their monochrome life in Kansas and land in colourful Oz, they decide to visit the glittering Emerald City for answers from the mysterious Wizard. But the Wicked Witch of the West has other plans… will Dorothy make it home safely?
The Wizard of Oz musical is based on the Oscar-winning classic film, with additional songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Musical theatre impresario Webber and acclaimed lyricist Rice have collaborated on many hit musicals including Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar.
The cast features comedian Jason Manford as the Cowardly Lion, Diversity’s Ashley Banjo as the Tin Man and Palladium Panto favourite Gary Wilmot as The Wizard.
The London Palladium production transfers from a heart-warming Christmas season at Leicester’s Curve Theatre, and is directed by Curve Artistic Director Nikolai Foster (White Christmas).
Leicester Curve and Foster have become powerhouses in producing incredible regional theatre which often transfers to London. Their recent successes include a version of Billy Elliot with entirely new choreography and The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole musical (directed by Luke Sheppard).
Follow the yellow brick road and enjoy a new version of the timeless classic in London, for a strictly limited season.
