Alex Jackson Pantomimes Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz Pantomime Script

This pantomime version of the classic story takes Dorothy, Toto and Aunt Em (the dame!) on a twisting adventure through the land of Oz.

The brainless Scarecrow, the heartless Tin Man and the cowardly Lion are all along for the ride, but can they defeat the Wicked Witch of the West and make it to the Wizard in the Emerald City?

There’s something for audiences of all ages as the comedy unfolds and Glinda the Good sets us off on our adventure down the winding yellow brick road.
