The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz will be playing from the 15 November to the 23rd December 2010 at the National Children’s Theatre (NCT) in Johannesburg. Follow the yellow brick road as L. Frank Baum’s heart-warming children’s classic, The Wizard of Oz,  is brought to life on stage. This spell-binding tale will transport audiences to the magical land of Oz during the December holidays, starting Monday 15 November 2010.

Join the irrepressible Dorothy together with her beloved dog Toto on her remarkable journey over the rainbow to the Emerald City. Along the way she meets a rusty Tin Man in search of a heart, a Scarecrow in need of a brain, and a Cowardly Lion who lacks courage …

Audiences of all ages will experience a rare treat as the magic, adventure and beauty of the adventure unfolds on stage. The NCT’s production will fascinate the very young who are experiencing this timeless tale for the first time, as well as older generations returning to a well-loved favourite for the umpteenth time. Whether you’re young or old, The Wizard of Oz strikes emotional chords in all who recognise life’s lessons learned in Oz: The importance of mind and heart; the need to dream and dare to ride out storms; the joys of loving and crying; the despair of being lost and elation at being found again.

… There’s no place like home.

The Wizard of Oz at the National Childrens TheatreThe Wizard of Oz will be staged and directed by the NCT’s award-winning director, Joyce Levinsohn. This is your perfect opportunity to give your family a piece of Oz this December holiday season. If you don’t reserve your Oz seats NOW, you may miss out altogether.
