A marvellous mix of magic, mayhem and munchkins, this classic story from the pen of L Frank Baum comes complete with some of the 20th century’s best-known children’s characters, including the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the cowardly Lion and, of course, the Wicked Witch of the West.

Baum’s story is certainly in safe hands with the ever-excellent Ballet Theatre UK, a 12-year-old company with an impressive history of producing bright and colourful shows designed to promote classical dance as a hugely accessible artform.

The Wizard Of Oz is one of two brand new offerings being toured by the ensemble this season - the other is Sense And Sensibility - with a revival of the company’s critically acclaimed production of Giselle also featuring.
