The panto stars S Club 7’s Tina Barratt as the ultimate villainess, the Wicked Witch of The West, and EastEnders’ Melissa Suffield as Dorothy, along with CITV’s Chris Edgerley as Tin Man and North Pier favourite, funny man Jolly Goode, as Scarecrow.

This spectacular family-friendly, panto-musical is suitable for all ages and boasts a full supporting cast and amazing dancers!

Join Kansas farm-girl Dorothy on her magical musical adventure through the magnificent Land of Oz at Blackpool’s North Pier Theatre this Easter (Saturday, April 5 to Sunday, April 20).

On her way to the Emerald City, Dorothy meets a Scarecrow who wants a brain, a Tin Man who desires a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wishes he had courage.

Will the wonderful Wizard of Oz be able to help them before the Wicked Witch of the West captures Dorothy and her friends and imprisons them all in her dark and dingy dungeons?
