Baysgarth Park transformed into the Land of Oz

Come along to Baysgarth Park on Sunday (August 27) and enjoy the last show in this year’s season of Performance in the Park as the Storytellers Theatre Company performs The Wizard of Oz.

Wizard-of-oz-emerald-city-clipart-kid Join Dorothy on her magical journey to the Land of Oz, from the cyclone that lifts her up in the air to her eventual final ride home in a musical story that will both fascinate and entertain.

Will the Wicked Witch of the West triumph, or will Dorothy rid the Land of Oz of the tyrant once and for all? She must kill both of the wicked witches if the Great Oz is to help her back to her home in Kansas. And what about the Scarecrow, does he find his brains? Just book your seat to see this production!

With colourful song, costume and action packed performance, this show will be a great treat for all who see it.  The performance starts at 2pm outside Baysgarth House Museum.  There is no charge but donations will be welcome.

Bring your seats, picnic, family and friends and enjoy the show!
