Click your heels together three times and say, ‘there’s no place like Curve this Christmas’.
The much-loved and magical story of The Wizard of Oz, spectacularly retold in our Made at Curve Christmas musical.
Directed by Curve Artistic Director Nikolai Foster (Billy Elliot The Musical, A Chorus Line, West Side Story) and featuring additional music and songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice alongside the iconic originals from the MGM film, join Dorothy and Toto as they are swept up from Kansas and transported over the rainbow to the re-imagined technicolour wonderland of Oz… where nothing is quite as it seems.
On her adventure along the Yellow Brick Road Dorothy meets Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion who help her on her way, but he villainous and frightfully glamorous Wicked Witch has other plans for Dorothy and Toto.
Through the menacing Dark Forest to the bright neon lights of the retro-futuristic Emerald City, Dorothy and her friends search for the powerful and mysterious Wizard of Oz, the only person who can grant their hearts’ desires, and maybe even a way home.
The Wizard of Oz is a spectacular Christmas at Curve adventure for the whole family to enjoy.
