Audiences will see a familiar magical land in a new light in a theatrical production coming to Murray Bridge Town Hall this weekend.

Like the more famous show with a wizard in its title, Oz! tells the story of Dorothy, her quest to get back home to Kansas and the friends she makes along the way.

Producer Hannah Smith described it as a fun-filled family show with something for everyone.

“The cast and crew have worked tirelessly to bring this classic story to life and cannot wait to share it with their audience,” she said.

There’ll be performances on Friday and Saturday nights, plus Saturday and Sunday matinees.
