It’s the 75th anniversary of this 1939 musical so be ready to be entertained by the colourful cast of characters in the wonderful World of Oz.

This film is notable for its use of Technicolour, fantasy storytelling, musical score and unusual characters has become one of the best known films and part of the American popular culture. It also features what may be the most elaborate use of characters, makeup and special effects of that time.

Sing along to Over the Rainbow, If Only I Had A Dream, Optimistic Voices, the Merry Old Land of Oz and so many more great hits with all of the lyrics displayed across the bottom of the screen to help you sing and enjoy a fun-filled evening. Dress in character and really become part of the event.
