THE timeless story of “The Wizard of Oz” will be brought to life by ANTS (Actors of North Tawton Society, and including Young ANTS), from May 31 to June 3.

Written by John Morley and in association with NODA, this musical production is a lively one, full of many of the Oz songs, and a fair few more!

It features a team of talented actors, singers, dancers and backstage crew.

The story begins as Dorothy meets the wonderful Munchkins somewhere over the rainbow.

As she travels through the Merry Ol’ Land of Oz, Dorothy meets the Tinman, Scarecrow and Lion.
