“Toto, I don’t think we’re in Toronto anymore!” Ross Petty Productions proudly presents THE WIZARD OF OZ – The Toto-ly Twistered Family Musical. Follow the yellow brick road to the Elgin Theatre in Toronto from November 29, 2018 – January 5, 2019 for the 23rd annual fractured fairytale!
Strapping on the famous ruby slippers will be Camille Eanga-Selenge (The Book of Mormon / Broadway and Australia), as the adventure-bound and homesick Dorothy. Swept up from their home on Ossington Avenue (in one of those twisters that the West End is known for), Dorothy and her dog Toto must find their way back home…with a little help from some friends along the way.
The funniest trio with more courage, heart and brains since the Three Stooges will help Dorothy along her journey. Matt Nethersole (Grand Hotel / Shaw Festival) will play the brainy-yet-clueless Scarecrow; Eric Craig (Matilda: The Musical / Mirvish) will be the original Man of Steel as the Tin Man; and Daniel Williston (Kinky Boots / Mirvish) will put on his bravest face as the Cowardly Lion.
Their evil nemesis, Sara Jeanne Hosie (Man of La Mancha / Stratford Festival) will grab her broom and kick up a storm as the infamous ‘Wicked’ Witch of the West.
Petty panto veterans, director Tracey Flye and fan-favourite Eddie Glen, as the Wizard, return for their 11th and 16th respective show with Ross Petty Productions.
