The Wizard of Oz Pantomime
by Houldershaw and Cartwright published July 2013
Suitable for All Groups
Emma Houldershaw and Samantha Cartwright have taken L Frank Baum's classic text and created a pantomime that is true to the original, fresh and lots of fun!
Join Dorothy and her dog Toto as she finds herself in the land of Oz. Follow her along the yellow brick road, with her friends the Scarecrow, the Tinman and the Lion, as she journeys to the Emerald City to ask the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, to send her home to Kansas. The four friends are unknowingly followed by Dorothy's Auntie Em and farm hand Harry Trotter. Meet Salt and Pepper, two flying monkeys that work for the Wicked Witch of the West, not quite as street as they think they are, and not quite as bad as the Witch would like them to be. Will Dorothy make it to the Wizard without the Witch stopping her, and will she click her heels and discover there really is no place like home? A modern pantomime twist on the classic story.
