The Wizard of Oz Show is com­ing to Auck­land this month and is col­lect­ing toys for Starship hospi­tal.

Af­ter more than 2000 in­ter­na­tional per­for­mances the chil­dren’s show will be at the Trusts Sta­dium in Waitakere at 10am on Septem­ber 26.

The New Zealand tour is be­ing com­bined with a chil­dren’s hospi­tal toy ap­peal and guests are in­vited to do­nate a new toy or book at the show.

Over two years it has raised funds for the Make-A-Wish Foun­da­tion, run toy cam­paigns for the Starship Foun­da­tion and a num­ber of hos­pi­tals, pro­moted child safety cam­paigns and do­nated to wor­thy causes.

The Wizard of Oz Show is a highly in­ter­ac­tive, vi­brant event and fea­tures ex­trav­a­gant mul­ti­me­dia tech­nol­ogy, pro­jec­tion, in­tel­li­gent lighting and catchy mu­sic.

Di­rec­tor Brian Laul says the shows are “about invit­ing kids to get up and move around, to re­late to our mu­sic and to laugh and have a good time”.

He says there will be heaps of mu­sic, danc­ing, singing and fun.

Tick­ets cost $12 each and those un­der one get in free. Tick­ets are avail­able at www.tick­ or call 0800 4 TICKET.
