Follow the Yellow Brick Road this Half-Term
The Wizard of Oz Youth Theatre production, featuring a number of young people from the Ballymena area, will run from Thursday 17 – Sunday 20 February at Theatre at The Mill, Newtownabbey.
Join Dorothy and her beloved dog Toto as they follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City to meet the Wizard. En-route they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants to gain courage.
This family favourite musical production will feature the best of local talent from our Home Spun Theatre School and will feature smash hits including Over the Rainbow, We’re Off to see the Wizard and If Only I had a Brain.
