Believe it or not: 2014 is the 75th Anniversary of The Wizard of Oz, MGM's classic movie based on the book by L. Frank Baum published in 1900.
Following over 3800 performances internationally, Youngstars2.com’s The Wizard of Oz Show celebrates this jubilee with a Yellow Brick Road Tour around Queensland during the July school holidays.
Click your heels together and get ready to follow a yellow brick road full of fun, adventure and wacky characters. Kids can rap with the Tinman, roar like a Lion, wake up sleepy Shakey the Scarecrow and dance with Dorothy in this interactive, new adaptation of America’s best loved fairy tale.
This is no sit-down-and-watch affair – the kids are even invited to come dressed as their favourite characters to celebrate their visit to the Wizard. Live action comes together with 3D animation on screen, catchy tunes and loads of interactive fun in this ‘toto-ally Oz-some’ treat ideal for 2 to 8 year olds.
This cast has been honoured to perform with and for the last living cast members from the 1939 MGM classic and other Oz royalty and represented Australia at the International Storytellers Festival. They are proud international ambassadors for IVI’s Eye Care Awareness Campaign and the 24Hour Fight Against Cancer.
“If great grandfather was alive, I’m sure he would be clapping, singing along and smiling with your show!” - Robert Baum, great grandson of Oz author L. Frank Baum
"I've seen lots of Oz productions but this one was truly extraordinary."- Margaret Pellegrini, one of the last living Munchkins from the 1939 Judy Garland-starrer.
The Wizard of Oz Showis about more than giving kids a good time. It spreads a message of hope and self-esteem to the young. Do bring along a toy or book for the show’s Children’s Hospital Toy Appeal. Duration: 55mins approx.
