Wiz Around Watchtree!

From Watchtree Nature Reserve: “Just a quick one to say a huge thank you to The Walking Theatre Company, our volunteers and all of the wonderful visitors who came to follow the yellow brick road! An awesome evening and some pennies in the charity pot. The icing on the cake was the rain started just as I locked the gates.”

BIG THANKS to Watchtree Nature Reserve in Cumbria for inviting TWTC to perform ‘WIZ AROUND OZ’ at their beautiful venue on the 6th of August. What a brilliant time we had – such a stunning location, and a super audience! Hope to see you all again soon!

Where will you ‘Wiz Around Oz’ this Summer?

Dorothy has lost Toto!
The Cowardly Lion has lost the Tin Man!
The Wicked Witch of the West has lost the Wicked Witch of the East!
The Scarecrow has lost the way!
…and the Great Wiz has lost his marbles!
**Munchkins needed to sort it all out!**
