Enchanted Entertainment, producers of many popular family pantomimes nationwide, are planning another theatrical extravaganza to delight audiences in the town during the festive period.

Producer Jezz Weatherall said: “We’re really looking forward to bringing The Wizard of Oz to Wellingborough this Christmas, the show has a great cast of TV stars and an amazing live band.

“We know how popular our pantomimes are across the UK and we’re going to give Castle theatre audiences a fun-filled family Christmas show in December.”

Enchanted Entertainment will be bringing 29 spell-binding performances of The Wizard of Oz to The Castle from December 13 to December 30.

The show will feature a host of professional performers including Chris Stanton, Mr Flatley from CBBC’s M.I. High as the wizard and Gabrielle Green, Katrina from CBBC’s Wolfblood, as Glinda – plus a full supporting cast and fantastic live band.

Producer Guy Pascall said: “It’s going to be great fun for all the family, everyone remembers such wonderful characters as the cowardly lion and the tin man who needs a heart etc.

“This show will take the original book written by L. Frank Baum and give it a new panto-style twist as only Enchanted Entertainment can.”

Enchanted Entertainment has assembled a stellar cast, a fantastic live band and are planning some spectacular magic to ensure The Wizard of Oz will be a brilliant family Christmas show with plenty of audience participation, fantastic sets and costumes, and jokes galore for all the family.
