The Wizard of Oz (2017)

The Wizard of Oz comes to Cape Town in 2017. This much loved children’s classic is on at the ArtsCape Opera House from 16 September to 8 October 2017. 

Synopsis:
Like so many girls her age, young Dorothy Gale dreams of what lies over the rainbow. One day, a twister hits her farm and carries her away to another world. Come join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Lion, and Toto as they travel the universe of Dorothy’s imagination! This stage adaptation includes all the beloved songs from the classic 1939 MGM movie musical, including “Munchkin land (Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead),” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “If I Only Had A Heart,” “If I Only Had The Nerve,” “We’re Off to See The Wizard (Follow the Yellow Brick Road),” “The Merry Old Land of Oz,” and – of course – “Over the Rainbow.” Join Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion and Toto on their adventure to the Wonderful Land of Oz.
