GEE WHIZ, IT’S OPENING NIGHT IN OZ
CELEBRITIES gave the yellow brick road some sparkle when the Wizard Of Oz opened at the Regent Theatre last night. Showbiz royalty BERT NEWTON, wife PATTI and their grandkids LOLA and
SAM (above) were among the star-studded crowd on the red carpet.
Newton has played the Wizard three times in various other productions.
He said: “The role means you’re working with kids and a dog, which is always interesting.” Other celebrities on the red carpet included author ZOE FOSTER BLAKE, actor MAVOURNEE HAZEL, and theatre favourite RHONDA BURCHMORE.
