The Chelis Theatre Company will showcase its The Wizard Of Oz production, set to feature Dorothy and her sparkling ruby slippers.

A cast of 30 performers, aged seven to 17, will reenact the tale – and the show will include songs such as We’re Off to See the Wizard, Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead and The Merry Old Land Of Oz.

The story unfolds when a tornado strikes Dorothy’s home, taking her and her cairn terrier Toto on a journey to the Land of Oz.

The company will put on the show at The Blakehay Theatre, in Wadham Street, on March 16.

Tickets, priced £9-11, are available at www.blakehaytheatre.co.uk/event/the-wizard-of-oz-rsc or from the box office on 01934 645493.
