Robyn Wallis and Allan Zinyk

After playing to sold out houses last holiday season to critical acclaim, Vancouver’s Carousel Theatre will bring the Wizard of Oz back to Granville Island from December 7 to January 6 (2013).

Join the fun as Dorothy and friends learn about courage, compassion, and the meaning of home in this timeless family musical. Carousel’s Jessie Award-winning team is set to transform your favorite movie moments into a theatrical spectacle sure to please the entire family.

Carousel Theatre welcomes back rising star Robyn Wallis (Hairspray) as Dorothy, Darren Burkett (Hairspray, Seussical) as the Scarecrow, Mike Stack (Henry VI, Richard III) as the Tinman, and Allan Zinyk (Seussical, A Year With Frog and Toad, Craig’s List Cantata) as the Cowardly Lion. From Somewhere Over the Rainbow to The Merry Old Land of Oz, this classic story continues to inspire and awaken imaginations, just as it has for generations.
