Following sell-out runs during Christmas 2014 and Easter 2016, you have a final chance to see Le Navet Bete and Barbican Theatre’s hugely successful show before it disappears over the rainbow!
Join Dorothy and Toto on their fantastical travels along the Road of Yellow Bricks meeting the usual suspects along the way – Tin Man, Lion and Scarecrow – as well as some you might not expect! Will they make it to the Emerald City? Will the Wicked Witch of the West stop them in their tracks? Will a Winged Monkey end up in your lap? Prepare yourselves for physical comedy, ridiculous characters, live music, tomfoolery and much much more!
Gordon Sparks, aka BBC Radio Devon’s “Sparksy”, will reprise his role as the Wizard of Oz, returning with his terrifying “Green Army.”
