The Wizard Of Oz

Everybody adores The Wizard Of Oz because, because, because! This fresh new production is based on the brilliant 1939 movie, as well-loved today as it always has been. Make your way to the London Palladium - the perfect venue for a big, bold spectacular of a musical like this - in summer 2023 and experience the magic for yourself. Bring the whole family, make an occasion of it, and fall in love with the Wiz all over again. The show is being directed by Nikolai Foster, who delighted us with his work on Billy Elliot The Musical, and A Chorus Line, and it’s on stage from Friday 23rd June.

The Wizard of Oz features all the tunes from the movie, plus extra songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. The choreography comes from Shay Barclay and the Set Designer is Colin Richmond, the Projection Designer is Douglas O'Connell, and the Costume and Puppet Designer is Rachael Canning. The rest of the creative team is equally strong and the word on the streets is the cast is going to be amazing as well. As the Producer Michael Harrison says, “The London Palladium is the home of the summer blockbuster musical, and there really will be no place like the Palladium for Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion, as they embark on their journey down the Yellow Brick Road.”

Young Couples:

Wonderful afternoon
Excellent show, perfectly delivered. The props and sound effects were magnificent. All actors were brilliant and the singing was sublime. And Jason Manfred should stick to the West End.

Wonderful show experience
This was my youngest sons first experience at the theatre and what can I say he was dancing he was so excited he wanted to be on stage with the characters. It was wonderfully put together. We were recommended this by a friend and so glad we came.
Sherryl, 01 Sep 2023
A fun & colourful production
A nice uplifting version of an old classic.There was some very good effects & the reworking of the music was a nice touch. I particularly liked the 'big band' production numbers!
Robert, 27 Aug 2023
Music was a little too loud
Everything was perfect, only the volume was too high

Loved the show from start to finish, all the cast was incredible ..: it brought me and my family so much happiness
Darran, 25 Aug 2023
First time visiting a show our lives and we can definitely say it was amazing from start to finish. So much so we’d actually said if we wasn’t busy the next night we’d go and see it again. Loved every minute of it
Sarah, 25 Aug 2023
I remember watching the film with Judy Garland as a child with my Mum and siblings. It was wonderful to see it as a stage show!
Monica, 24 Aug 2023

We had great seats and great view of stage , the show was fantastic , the puppeteer was excellent
Gary, 21 Aug 2023
I grew up with rhe Wozard of Oz, always the Christmas film I loved to watch. Yesterday's theatre production was utterly delightful. Excellent music ,singing, costumes and the characters were perfect in their portrayal of the story - with a quirky twist or 2.
Sarah, 20 Aug 2023
Very good show great seats would definitely recommend it.
Douglas, 19 Aug 2023
Good fun evening out
You will hear all the familiar songs from the film, as well as some new ones. Singing and dance routines were of quality performance. Costumes were great. Highly recommend for fans young and old. I particularly enjoyed both witches!

Happy Feel Good Show
Most enjoyable happy funny family show. The music is uplifting and makes me wish I could purchase an audio recording of the show.
Linda, 17 Aug 2023
Great show!
It was a great show I would have mined to see Ashley Banjo more involved wit dance! I also the finale could have been better!

Struans Treat
Wonderful production all round, slightly spoiled by the altitude of the male member of staff who snapped shut his refuse bag as my grandson tried to dispose of his smoothie carton as we left, there was a small amount left wich then landed on the floor, stupid and rude reaction.

Must see
Great for family’s . We all really enjoyed it . Boys aged 7 and 8 ?
Gemma, 12 Aug 2023
Great songs
ROBERTO, 11 Aug 2023
Super tolles Musical
Wir saßen ganz oben und waren super begeistert. Man konnte auch als nicht Muttersprachler*in alles gut nachvollziehen und verstehen. Die Kostüme und das Bühnenbild war super toll und die Musik hat uns auch sehr gut gefallen. Wir würden es definitiv weiterempfehlen. Bestenfalls natürlich die günstigen Tickets (am Tag der Aufführung um 10 Uhr morgens freigeschaltet).
Nina, 01 Aug 2023
Sympathetic to the original but with a touch of updating...
Great casting, the main characters were all exceptional, Jason Manford and Ashley Banjo in were Glinda and Dorothy... talented ensemble too..... I would have liked a longer medley of the classic tunes and curtain down.....
Stephen, 31 Jul 2023
bigger production
Felt the production was not big enough for the show/venue. Should be a lot more of the ensemble
Julie, 31 Jul 2023
It was so amazing in every way couldn’t fault the whole experience from getting to the theatre right to the end highly recommend for family’s.

Spectacular performance. Loved every second of it. The performers bring an incredible dynamic on stage and take us with them right from the start until the very end. Beautiful interpretation of a beautiful tale.

Best show ever!
Wonderful evening at the Palladium. Had everything!
Richard, 27 Jul 2023
Excellent show!
The show was excellent but the music was to loud!
Wendy, 27 Jul 2023
Fab show
I saw this many years ago and loved it. This time I brought my 11year old niece and again it was brilliant. The set/scene changes had a new modern feel but the story is still the same. The cast and acting was all amazing but my absolute favourite was Jason Manford as the cowardly lion.
Sam, 24 Jul 2023
A wonderful family show
An enjoyable show with wonderful acting and singing by Jason Manford
Patricia, 22 Jul 2023
Must see
A fab show for families to share in the magic of theatre.
Dean, 16 Jul 2023
Really helpful, friendly staff. Great show, cast were great, Ashleys debut, a triumph and Jason in particular was amazing as the cowardly lion. Toto and his puppeteer was genius and stole the show for us. Of course all the cast were phenomenal and we had the best time.
Michelle, 16 Jul 2023
Loved it
Absolutely loved the show, read some reviews before hand and wasn't sure what to expect. All o can say is we as s group of six thought it was fabulous, some great singing and dancing, costumes were fantastic and some funny comedy moments.100% reccomend.
Lynda, 16 Jul 2023
Wizardry interpretation of Oz
One of my all time favourite films (I am 66) interpreted, transformed and performed to the highest level. From the well known stars to the man looking after Toto it was excellent. Sitting slightly further back or higher up May give the best view. I was in stalls row E and loved it.
Julie, 14 Jul 2023
My only disappointment was not being able to see all the stage so missed a lot of what was going on wouldn’t book these seats again
Michelle, 14 Jul 2023
I never usually write reviews, but oh my did these exceed expectations and absolutely brilliant!! The actors were phenomenal and kept us entertained and engaged at all times. I must mention my seats, usually when booking last minute you don’t get good seats or either you do and they are mega expensive. I paid £50 for both me and my brother last minute which I thought was a bargain! Not only that seats were mentioned as being restrictive with view but they were yet again fab and I could see everything close up and nothing restricted my view in the slightest! All in all one of the best shows I have been to and I have been to a fair few theatre shows ?
Saira, 13 Jul 2023
Fantastic show
Brilliant from start to finish excellent acting,singing and choreography ?
Carole, 10 Jul 2023
Feel good colourful show!
Superb acting and singing by all cast members! Affordable west end show that will make you feel good. Follow the yellow brick road to see the wizard of oz! You will be in for a great time.
Ananta, 09 Jul 2023
Wonderful Wizard of Oz x
The musical was excellent throughout and funny too. Singing was brilliant, acting amazing and was so colourful. They gave the Musical a modern twist which was phenomenal. So pleased that we came to watch an excellent show. We absolutely loved it and could easily watch it again. X

Neurological work out
A feast of colour, drama and energy. Great technology but there is no substitute for gifted human voices and musical genius.
Mary, 05 Jul 2023
Must see
From start to finish the show was amazing, I loved how it all flowed. The singing was fantastic from all the cast, who knew Ashley Banjo could sing. I was totally wowed as was my friend who got emotional when Dorothy sang Somewhere over the Rainbow.
