The all-new Australian Premiere of THE WIZARD OF OZ ARENA SPECTACULAR will bring to life one of the most beloved fantasy tales of all time at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre in April 2019. 

 

Harvest Rain CEO and Director, Tim O’Connor says, "Everyone knows and loves the 1939 film, but for this new arena production, we wanted to take what audiences are familiar with and tip it on its head. This is a whole new vision of Oz, brought to life on the massive arena stage with state-of-the-art technology and wizardry."

 

The stage for the show is the size of three basketball courts (large enough to hold the 500-strong cast) and the entire set has a 9-metre high LED screen wrapped around it where wall-to-wall animations will bring the land of Oz to life in vivid colour unlike any other production of THE WIZARD OF OZ has done before.

 

"This is a total reimagining of Oz," says Tim O'Connor, "so if you think you've seen it all before, think again. This show is grungier and more moody than past iterations - a little less pantomime and a little more steampunk. It has a darker edge, but it's very fanciful - a real delight for the young, and the young at heart."

 

THE WIZARD OF OZ - ARENA SPECTACULAR opens at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre in April 2019.
