“Working with our Curve Wizard of Oz set designer Colin Richmond, we’d like to use these children’s drawings of rainbows and Oz to help inspire the set design of our Made at Curve production. We imagine our Oz as a world sketched by a child, as seen through Dorothy and Toto’s imaginations. You might see your work on stage at Curve this Christmas and it will help inspire our design process.” – Curve’s Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster
Based on the classic 1939 MGM film, Curve’s production of The Wizard of Oz will include the iconic songs Somewhere Over The Rainbow, If I Only Had A Brain and Follow The Yellow Brick Road, as well as new music and songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
Running 28th Nov 2020 – 16th Jan 2021 at Curve this Christmas, the magical family musical will be directed by Curve’s Artistic Director, Nikolai Foster, whose previous Christmas productions include West Side Story, White Christmas – which ran at Curve and in London’s West End – and Scrooge the Musical.

“We’d love you and your children to read L. Frank Baum’s wonderful novel or watch the legendary Judy Garland film and send us your drawings of Oz, rainbows, the Yellow Brick Road, the Wizard, the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, Poppy fields, the great Gates of Oz and the Wicked Witch of the West, her scary lair and flying monkeys. – we would like to see your versions of these characters and places and how they fire your imagination.” – Curve’s Chief Executive Chris Stafford and Artistic Director Nikolai Foster
