Lorna Laidlaw / The Wizard of Oz


We’re incredibly thrilled to have LORNA LAIDLAW playing The Wizard in THE WIZARD OF OZ at Birmingham Rep 24 November November – 13 January.

See Oz like you’ve never seen it before!

When farm girl Dorothy Gale runs away from the evil Miss Gulch, she finds herself lost in a strange and wonderful new world. With her faithful dog Toto at her side, she sets off on an adventure to find her way back home.

Along the way she meets some peculiar but loveable characters who are also in search of something special – a Scarecrow needing a brain, a Tin Man looking for a heart and a Lion lacking in courage. Together they follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City in search of answers from the mysterious and all-powerful Wizard of Oz.

But the friends soon find themselves caught between the forces of good and evil as they are mercilessly pursued by the Wicked Witch of the West. Will they ever make it to Oz and find what they are desperately seeking from the Wizard?

The Wizard Of Oz is one of the most popular tales of all time and has delighted generations. In a bold yet faithful reimagining, directed by Liam Steel, this spectacular production features your favourite songs and characters from the classic film with an added sprinkle of REP magic.

Join us somewhere over the rainbow for a fantastic festive treat…
