It is with great sadness to announce that together with our partners at Really Useful Group, we have made the decision to postpone this year’s Made at Curve Christmas production of The Wizard of Oz until Christmas 2021.

From casting to building sets and making hundreds of costumes, large-scale productions like The Wizard of Oz take months of preparation. As there is currently no certainty as to when Curve and the theatre industry can fully re-open, we are forced to make this decision now. 

We know how much Christmas at Curve means to our audiences, with many people visiting our theatre for the first time and it’s hard to imagine Leicester without a festive show at Curve. Alongside audiences, our thoughts are with the hundreds of freelance actors, musicians, designers, prop makers and production staff who won’t be joining us on the road to Oz this year. 

The rescheduled dates for The Wizard of Oz are Saturday 27 November 2021 – Saturday 15 January 2022. All ticket holders will be contacted over the next few weeks and we politely ask all customers to wait to be contacted by one of our team. It’s an epic job for our depleted team and your patience is hugely appreciated. Automatic transfers to our 2021 dates and full refunds will be made available. 

Although we are devastated, if there is any chance we can get back in our building before the end of the year and create something for you this Christmas, we will do. It’s going to be a much longer journey to Oz than even Dorothy and her motley crew could have imagined, but it will be well worth it when we are all together at Curve once again. 

Keep well and safe,

Chris Stafford, Chief Executive & Nikolai Foster, Artistic Director
