The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - the panto
by Andrew Winfield
Nov 23-25, 2017
Follow the yellow-brick road to Upper Norwood this festive season and join the Downsview Players as they help Dorothy and Toto find their way home.Frustrated with her school days and bored of life at home with her aunt and uncle, Dorothy is suddenly caught in a cyclone which whisks her and Toto away to the land of Oz. Here, she encounters the dance-crazy Munchkins, the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the South West (who rather resembles her school cook). She meets new friends: a scarecrow, who tells awful jokes; a tin man who is found at a rubbish tip; and a lion who bears a passing resemblance to her headmaster. As the gang all try to make their way to meet the Great Oz to make their wishes come true, they are hampered by the Flying Monkeys (the familiarly named John, Paul, George and Ringo) and the Wicked Witch’s Winkie army!There'll be laughs, dames, nonsense and more. Join us this November 23-25.
