Wizard of Oz show in Brussels

We´re off to see …….a bit of post-Christmas magic? Banish those post-festive blues by following the Yellow Brick Road… all the way to Forest National in Brussels for a brand new production of that timeless classic, the Wizard of  Oz.

This new show by Music Hall Productions has been totally reconceived for the stage and contains all the much loved songs from the Oscar-winning movie score, all the favourite characters, plus a few surprises along the way.

For those unfamiliar with the show, it tells the story of how, when a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz.They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage. The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West to earn his help.

So, come on, why not click your heels together and join Scarecrow, Tin Man, Dorothy and Toto as they journey through the magical land of Oz to meet the Wizard?

Beware! Watch out along the way for the Wicked Witch of the west and her winged monkeys….

The show runs at Forest National from 2 to 4 January. Details on times and prices are available by calling 0900 69 900 or by visiting www.sherpa.be
