Join Dorothy and her friends in this pantomime version of the Wizard of Oz, as they set off along the yellow brick road on a journey packed with surprises. Scarecrow is looking for a new brain, Tinman is in need of a heart and Cowardly Lion is desperate to find some courage.

On the way they'll meet the munchkins and the meanest, greenest witch ever to straddle a broomstick! But will they reach their journey's end to find the Wizard of Oz and will he be able to grant them their wishes? You can be sure of one thing - there'll be lots of songs, jokes, boos, hisses and cheering for everyone to join in.

"Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the Wilmslow Guild Panto!"
