The Wizard of Oz, Jubilee Hall, Rothbury, Sunday, February 19, 2.30pm and Wednesday, February 22 to Saturday, February 25, 7.30pm. Tickets £7 adults, £6 concessions, £4 children, under fives free.

CLICKING their heels and following the yellow brick road, Coquetdale Amateur Dramatic Society (CADS) is set to bring another fantastic performance to Rothbury this month.

Performing the MGM version of The Wizard of Oz, the cast has been busy rehearsing over the last few months to make yet another spectacular production with popular and well-loved songs such as Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Ding Dong the Witch is Dead.

The show has become topical again since it re-appeared in a modernized version currently showing in the West End of London.

The Wizard of Oz first came to the screen in 1939 and starred Judy Garland with her amazing performance of Dorothy.

In this production, CADS has two Dorothys, both local Rothbury girls who are to share this demanding role.

This thrilling tale revolves round Dorothy trying to get back home from the Land of Oz over the rainbow, and being helped or hindered by Munchkins, witches, jitterbugs, ghosts, a mysterious and powerful wizard and accompanied by her engaging new friends Scarecrow, Tin Man and the cowardly Lion.

CADS invite you to fly over the rainbow with Dorothy and the cast and follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City to see the Wizard of Oz.

The Wednesday and Thursday performances both have cabaret style seating. There is a bar at all evening performances. Tickets are available at Tully’s shop in Rothbury.
