The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

There’s no place like home…

For younger audiences and their friends and families we present our unique take on one of the best loved children’s classics of all time.

Young Dorothy has been swept by a tornado, far from her Kansas home, to the magical land of Oz. Only a mighty Wizard knows how she can get home but in exchange for the secret he demands she destroys the Wicked Witch of The West.

Aided by her dog Toto and their new Oz friends, Scarecrow, Tin Man and a cowardly lion, the team must find brains, hearts and courage to defeat the evil creature.

Packed with adventure, comedy and friendship and brought to vivid new life in a fresh, fun and fast moving production, our version of the Wizard of Oz is the perfect way to introduce youngsters to the joy of theatre going and live performance.

King Arthur

This is the oath of a Knight of King Arthur’s Round Table and should be for all of us to take to heart….

Arthur is chosen as the unlikely king of a mythical, medieval England. Aided by the wizard Merlin and opposed by the ruthless enchantress, Morgan le Fay, he must unite a fractured kingdom.

He establishes a golden age leading a new breed of honourable brother-sister knights, who gather democratically around his famous round table. But the idyllic peace and harmony is threatened by rivalry and unexpected betrayals of the heart, including the love of Arthur’s queen, Guinevere for his best friend, Lancelot.

Drawing from the beautiful ancient text of Sir Thomas Malory’s celebrated telling of the Camelot myths, Le Morte D’Artur, our romantic, action packed, dramatic account of King Arthur’s reign will captivate anyone who appreciates the power of language, potent symbolism and an epic story, well told.
