SYDNEY SEASON TO END ON FEBRUARY 4


THE WIZARD of OZ has quickly become Sydney’s smash hit summer musical, with almost every performance to date sold out and only a limited number of tickets left until the end of the run.

The London Palladium production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Wizard of Oz has been thrilling capacity audiences since it opened but it must leave Sydney in two weeks time on February 4, ahead of seasons in Adelaide and Melbourne.

Sydney’s theatre critics have been equally impressed by the production.

The Sunday Telegraph called it “Impressively lavish” with “Stunning sets and costumes … audiences are in for a treat.” Sydney Arts Guide claimed it’s “a breathtaking musical revelation” with “new enchanting and unforgettable songs”, while the Sydney Morning Herald said the production is “a visual treat.”

Leading The Wizard of Oz cast are Anthony Warlow as The Wizard and Professor Marvel, Lucy Durack as Glinda the Good Witch and Jemma Rix as The Wicked Witch of the West.

Rising star Samantha Dodemaide plays the coveted role of Dorothy, her first leading role in a major musical. Eli Cooper plays the role of the Scarecrow, Alex Rathgeber plays the Tin Man, and John Xintavelonis plays the Lion.

The ensemble cast includes Paul Hanlon as Uncle Henry and Sophie Weiss as Auntie Em, alongside Justin Anderson, Sheridan Anderson, Lewis Beer, Shay Debney, Sage Douglas, Mikey Halcrow, Zoe Ioannou, Bree Langridge, Rubin Matters, Scott Morris, Justine Puy, Michael Roache, Mitchell Roberts, Emma Russell, Dean Schulz, Darren Tyler, Caleb Vines, Stephanie Wall and Rachael Ward.

Developed from the ever-popular MGM screenplay, the London Palladium production of The Wizard of Oz contains the beloved Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg songs from the Oscar®-winning movie score, all the favorite characters and iconic moments, plus a few surprises along the way, including new songs by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Click your heels together and join Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, Dorothy and her little dog Toto, as they journey through the magical land of Oz to meet the Wizard and obtain their hearts’ desires.

Watch out for the Wicked Witch of the West and her winged monkeys as you rediscover the real story of Oz in this fantastic musical treat for the whole family. Only two weeks to go!
