CLICK your heels together three times and join St.Comhghall’s College, Lisnaskea as Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, Dorothy and her little dog Toto journey through the magical land of Oz.

The Wizard of Oz is an enchanting musical and our cast have worked tirelessly to perfect these well known, beloved characters that we all grew up with.

The school are delighted to announce that it will be showing in St. Comhghall’s College from Wednesday 11th to Friday, 13th December, 2013.

Orphan Dorothy Gale (Caitlin Curran) lives a simple life in Kansas with her Aunt Em (Emer McManus), Uncle Henry and three colourful farm hands, lunk-headed Hunk (James Toye), blustery but timid Zeke (Josh McNally) and cold-hearted Hickory (Shakeel Adams).

One day their dastardly neighbour Miss Almira Gultch (Jodie Curran) is bitten by Dorothy’s loveable little dog, Toto.

When Dorothy flees the Kansas ranch to find a safe haven from her wicked old neighbour a twister strikes carrying her and Toto to the magical land of Oz

A confused Dorothy awakens to discover her house has landed on the Wicked Witch of the East.

Glinda (Sophie O’Connor), the good Witch of the North, introduces Dorothy to the citizens of Munckinland and informs her that she must keep the ruby slippers safe from her evil nemesis, the Wicked Witch of the West (Jodie Curran).

Dorothy is to follow the yellow brick road to ask the Wizard (Dan Reilly) to safely return her home to her Aunt and Uncle in Kansas.

On her way Dorothy befriends a Scarecrow with no brain (Adam Tierney), a Tin Man with no heart (Jason Reilly) and a Cowardly Lion (Matthew Mc Grade).

The three decide to accompany Dorothy to the Wizard in the hopes of obtaining their desires.

When they arrive at the Emerald City their excitement is cut short when the Wicked Witch spells out her warning: “Surrender Dorothy!”

The Wizard tells the Kansas girl and her group he will only grant their requests if they bring him the broomstick of the Wicked Witch of the West.

Follow the yellow brick road and over the rainbow, watching the thrills and spills as Dorothy and her friends attempt to accomplish this mammoth task.

Watch out for the Wicked Witch of the West and her minions as you rediscover the real story of Oz in this fantastic musical treat for all the family.
