Wizard of OZ Comes to the Daneside Theatre this May
Congleton Amateur Youth Theatre are rehearsing for their next production – Wizard of OZ showing at the Daneside Theatre, Congleton from 13th – 16th November.
L. Frank Baum’s classic novel comes to life in The Wizard of Oz. Young Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto are swept away by a tornado from her Kansas farm to the magical land of Oz.
To find her way home, she must journey along the Yellow Brick Road to see the mysterious and all-powerful Wizard in Emerald City. Along the way, she makes new friends, but must also brave many dangers, including the Wicked Witch of the West, who will stop at nothing to get her hands on Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers. To make it home safely, Dorothy must learn an important lesson: there’s no place like home.
