Wizard of Oz set to follow yellow brick road to The REP Birmingham

Audiences across the Midlands will be able to follow the yellow brick road to Birmingham Repertory Theatre in Christmas 2018, as the theatre has announced the exciting news that The Wizard of Oz is coming to the stage. 

In a new staging of the musical, there really will be no place like The REP later this year as Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion skip down the Yellow Brick Road, across the Poppy Field and into the Emerald City in search of the wonderful Wizard of Oz. 

The epic stage version of the legendary MGM musical will also feature everyone’s favourite songs including Somewhere Over The Rainbow, If I Only Had A Brain and Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead. 

Roxana Silbert, The REP’s Artistic Director said: “The Wizard of Oz is such a great show that’s perfect for fans of the film and musicals alike. 

"With a glorious cast of characters including a wicked witch and a tail-wagging Toto, a stunning setting, fabulous music and a sprinkling of REP magic, it’s got all the vital ingredients for a wonderful Christmas show for everyone.” 

The Wizard of Oz follows The REP’s recent critically-acclaimed festive productions and box office hits, The Hundred and One Dalmatians, Nativity! The Musical and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. 

The Wizard of Oz opens at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 24 November and runs until 13 January. 

Tickets are now on sale to members with public booking opening on Friday 26 January, 2018. For more information, head here
