Follow the yellow brick road to Bolton this Christmas to experience the magical story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Lost in an unfamiliar land, inhabited by 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 Man, and the Cowardly Lion, Dorothy sets out along the yellow brick road to find the Great Oz – a Wizard from Wigan with the power to make all of their dreams come true.

As our building is currently closed for our major redevelopment project we are thrilled to presenting our festive show this year at the University of Bolton Stadium (formerly the Macron) and after box office and critical success in 2011 we can't wait to see this iconic story return to Bolton once again.
