Follow the yellow brick road to Leeds Playhouse this Christmas, as The Wizard of Oz twirls into town…

This Christmas, Leeds Playhouse will premiere an epic new production of The Wizard of Oz. Not only is it one of the best-loved stories of all time and an all-singing all-dancing extravaganza, but it’s also the first major show to grace the beautiful new Quarry Theatre since its refurbishment. This will sell out fast, so grab your tickets and settle down for an action-packed night of flying witches, yellow brick roads and magical mayhem.

If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll be treated to a spellbinding evening with four tickets to see The Wizard of Oz on Friday 6th December 2019. It’s a musical gem for all ages. Leeds Playhouse are masters at taking cherished classics and serving them up with a twist, so you’ll be whisked away to the mythical world of Oz where Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion are on the journey of a lifetime. Oh, and little Toto, of course!

A visual spectacular, you can expect puppets, projections, and even a winged monkey or two. They have their very own aerial artists, so expect surprises galore as they tell the story in eye-popping detail. After you watch the fantasy come to life around you, you can dust off your vocal chords and join the live band for a belting rendition of songs like ‘We’re Off To See The Wizard’ and ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’.

Far more than just a gripping tale of derring-do, The Wizard of Oz is a story with soul. You’ll experience triumphant highs, emotional lows and the power of friendship as these treasured characters battle the odds and join forces on their way to the Emerald City. From tiny tots all the way to grandparents, this is one show you won’t want to miss this Christmas.

Indulge in a barbecue banquet before the show

Red's True BBQ feast

Nobody wants to start an adventure on an empty stomach, so there’s a slap-up meal waiting for you at Red’s True Barbecue before the show. You’ve got a £100 tab to play with, which means you can indulge in flame-grilled fancies like melt-in-your-mouth brisket, smoked wings, gooey mac ’n’ cheese bites and their legendary donut burger. Yes, a burger made out of donuts! They’ve got a kids menu, veggie options and a selection of cheeky desserts too. You’ll feel more stuffed than a Christmas stocking by the time you get to the theatre.
