The Brookside Theatre in Romford have asked us to highlight their forthcoming production of the Wizard of Oz. We are delighted to do so, but the its staging is obviously subject to any coronavirus restrictions in place at the time.

‘Britain’s Got Talent star, Becky O’Brien is to take on the role of ‘The Wicked Witch of The West’ in the Brookside Theatre’s spectacular masterpiece, The Wizard of Oz, based on the classic MGM movie. Becky stole the hearts of the nation in 2015 when she reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent with her breath-taking rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. Since then, Becky has performed her critically-acclaimed tribute show to Judy Garland all over the world. 

Joining Becky on stage will be rising star Sadie Sutherland in the lead role of ‘Dorothy’, together with Peter Beadle as ‘The Wizard’, Josh Handley as ‘Scarecrow’, Dan Marshall as ‘Tin Man’ and the theatre’s Artistic Director, Jai Sepple as ‘Lion’.

The Wizard of Oz is the timeless story of adventure and friendship; young Dorothy and her little dog Toto are caught in a cyclone and whisked away to the magical Land of Oz. With a new pair of ruby slippers and friends Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion by her side, Dorothy follows the yellow brick road to the magical Emerald City in search of the all-powerful Wizard, who she hopes will grant her heart’s desire.

The Wizard of Oz plays at the Brookside Theatre, Romford from 09 – 23 December 2020. Tickets are on sale now via the theatre’s website or call the box office on 01708 755 775.’
