Have your say

That famous yellow brick road will be found at Lynn Walks when an open-air adaptation of The Wizard of Oz is staged there on Monday, August 8.

The show starts at 2pm – and there’s also the chance to book in for a special Wizard of Oz workshop which starts at 1pm.

You are invited to click your heels and join in the fun with this Immersion Theatre presentation which promises to be a magical family show guaranteed to have you in stitches from beginning to end!

Join Dorothy on her quest to the Emerald City as she and her loyal friends the brainless but cheeky scarecrow, the cowardly lion and the heartless (literally!) tin man, navigate through a magical land in search of the mighty and mysterious, Wizard of Oz.

With the Wicked Witch of the West determined to stop them by any means necessary, however, will the spirit of friendship triumph over evil?

With lashings of audience participation, dazzling costumes, an original script and plenty of laughter, this faithful re-telling promises to have you shouting, clapping and singing along to a host of brand new songs as Immersion Theatre presents a fantastic summer treat for all the family.

The cast includes Rachel Stratton who will play Dorothy, having previously starred in international tours of Shrek the Musical as well as the West End production of Rainbow Magic Live. Matthew Forbes plays the brainless Scarecrow, straight from a role as associate director of puppetry and movement on the National Theatre’s worldwide smash hit War Horse.

They are joined by Rob Gathercole as the Tin Man, James Clifford as the Lion and Rochelle Parry as the Wicked Witch of the West, who have all had extensive experience across the West End, UK touring productions and pantomime.

Prices for the show are £9 children, £12 adults, family tickets (three or four) £9 per person and the cost for the workshop is £3 per child; these are all available from Lynn Corn Exchange box office or call on 01553 764864.
