CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled.

This Christmas the Octagon Theatre Bolton presents a festive production of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - a new adaptation of the classic tale featuring brand new original songs that will enchant both adults and children alike. Lost in an unfamiliar land, inhabited by wizards, munchkins, flying monkeys and witches, Dorothy and her faithful dog Toto, need to find their way back home to Bolton. Heading for the Emerald City, with the help of her new friends; Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and the cowardly Lion, Dorothy sets out along the yellow brick road to find the Great Oz - a Wizard with the power to make all of their dreams come true. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a story about the importance of family and friendships, and, of course, that there really is no place like home. In this adaptation Kansas has been replaced by the familiar surroundings of Bolton, and the cast of professional actors will be joined by talented local young performers who attended open auditions earlier in the year to win their places on the Octagon stage.

Performers Ellie Paskell (Dorothy), Ruth Alexander-Rubin, Paul Ryan Carberry, Clara Darcy, Lee Drage, Thomas Eyre, Lloyd Gorman.
Producer Octagon Theatre Bolton. Director Elizabeth Newman. Design Elizabeth Wright. Costume Elizabeth Wright. Musical Director Barbara Hockaday. Music Barbara Hockaday. Lighting Ciaran Bagnall. Sound Andy Smith.
