OZ IS ON AT OLD MILL NOW WITH MORE ELVIS
THIS November and December, you could be off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz, with a family pantomime version of The Wizard of Oz on at Old Mill Theatre.
In this version, Aunt Em joins Dorothy and Toto as they travel to Emerald City.
On the way, they collect Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and Tin Man as well as Elvis Presley, who has been touring Oz and can’t find his way home.
South Perth director Maree Grayden said it was inspired by the success of a similar pantomime version of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs last year.
Grayden is determined to introduce people to theatre.
“I have doubled the recommended number of munchkin and monkey roles to give as many opportunities as possible for young people to tread the boards,” she said.
“I’ve been extremely fortunate in the breadth of theatre knowledge and talent within the adult cast. They have the skills and experience to really own their characters and have an absolute ball with the audience.”
