The Wizard of Oz Blows into Saskatchewan this December

One of the greatest family musicals of all time, the Wizard of Oz is coming to Saskatchewan! This magical production, based on the Royal Shakespeare Company’s celebration of the 1939 MGM movie, is presented with breathtaking special effects that will sweep audiences away from the moment the tornado twists its way into Kansas.

The Wizard of Oz will be performed in Regina and Saskatoon during December. It comes to the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina, December 15-16, 2010, and TCU Place in Saskatoon December 17-18, 2010.

Director Nigel West, choreographer Leigh Constantine and set and costume designer Tim McQuillen-Wright utilize the glamour and elegance of art deco Hollywood as the visually stunning technicolour backdrop for the Wizard of Oz. Dorothy, Toto and their friends the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow are transported 'Over the Rainbow' to adventures in Munchkin Land, the Haunted Forest, and the Emerald City.

Featuring the classic songs by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg, "Over the Rainbow", "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" and "Merry Old Land of Oz", along with the beloved characters, the Wizard of Oz will have the entire family captivated as they travel down the yellow brick road for an unforgettable evening at the theater.
