The Wilde Theatre, South Hill Park

1st - 5th November 2017

The Wizard of Oz is one of Musical Theatre's most iconic stories. The songs are timeless and have entertained adults and children alike for generations. As a show, it presents a whole host of opportunities for EBOS, including the chance to showcase its talented membership and to try things we haven't done before like stage magic and trickery, running a summer school to include a child chorus and build a new and exciting creative team to work on the visual elements of the show which are so important - especially when a title such as this is so instantly and visually recognisable.
