Preview: Wizard of Oz at Whitley Bay Playhouse

Whitley Bay is in for a magical
adventure this Easter

The Wizard of Oz
Starring Ashleigh and Pudsey
Whitley Bay Playhouse
Thursday 9th & Friday 10th April 2015

This Easter, audiences at PLAYHOUSE Whitley Bay, will set off on a magical adventure, over the rainbow.  The wonderful Wizard of Oz, starring Britain’s Got Talent winners, Ashleigh & Pudsey is brought to the stage by Shone Productions, this Thursday 9th & Friday 10th April.

Recently seen on CBBC with their hit series ‘Who let the dogs out?’ Ashleigh & Pudsey are starring as Dorothy & Toto. Joining them is the hilarious Lloyd Hollett as the Scarecrow and Hollyoaks’ Laura Handley as the Wicked Witch of the West, who is determined to foil their quest by any means necessary!
Join Dorothy and her little dog Toto as they journey down the yellow brick road to see the great and powerful Wizard of Oz, meeting lots of new friends along the way; the bumbling Scarecrow who is desperate for a brain, the Tin Man who wants a heart and the Cowardly Lion who needs some courage.
Ashleigh Butler said: Wizard of Oz is one of my favourite films. I remember watching it on repeat when I was a little girl. Now Pudsey and I have a chance to bring Dorothy and Toto to life on the stage. We can't wait to work alongside a great cast and entertain everyone with this classic story. So come and join us on our journey along the yellow brick road”
Producer & Director, James Shone explains: “I am very pleased to be coming to the Playhouse this Easter with The Wizard of Oz. The show features a fantastic cast, dancers, live band and beautiful scenery and costumes. This modern version of the classic story even includes some current popular songs. There is something for the whole family and you’re in for a real treat.”
