The Wizard of Oz Show

Billed as one of Australia’s top children’s shows, this is no sit-down-and-watch affair – the kids are invited to get involved in these adventures down the Yellow Brick Road and can even come dressed as their favourite Oz characters. Live action is mixed with cartoons on screen, intelligent lighting and catchy tunes!

Honoured as a special invitee to the world’s largest Oz Festival in America recently, the show drew much praise from Oz “royalty” present. Hollywood celebrity Robert Baum, great grandson of Oz author Frank Baum, said: “If great grandfather was alive, I’m sure he would be clapping, singing along and smiling with your show!”

“I’ve seen lots of Oz productions but this one was truly extraordinary”, said Margaret Pellegrini, one of the last living Munchkins from the 1939 Judy Garland Oz movie, who performed with the cast.

The Wizard of Oz Show is about more than giving kids a good time. It spreads a message of hope and self-esteem to the young. Audience members are also invited to bring along a toy or book to go towards our Children’s Hospital Toy Appeal.
