They’re off to see the wizard this year at the region’s biggest Christmas panto.
The Sands Centre in Carlisle will be the home for Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and all your favourites from the Wizard of Oz from Monday 10 December to New Year’s Eve.
Following the Yellow Brick Road will be two stars from Britain's Got Talent, one UK Eurovision singer and a CFM radio favourite.
Kansas farm-girl Dorothy and her pet dog Toto are picked up by a tornado and carried off to the magical Land of Oz. With help from their new friends the Munchkins, they travel to the Emerald City to see the great Wizard of Oz. On their way they meet a Scarecrow who needs a brain, a Tin Man who wants a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who desperately needs courage.
BGT 2012 winner Ashleigh Butler and her dog Sully star as Dorothy and Toto. Carlisle-born Eurovision singer Nicki French will be doing her best to stop their journey as The Wicked Witch of the West.
Another BGT hit, impressionist and vocalist Andrew Fleming, returns for his third Carlisle panto and he’ll be joined by CFM's breakfast presenter and pantomime favourite Robbie Dee back for his 17th year.
Tickets are on sale now for this festive treat which is suitable for all the family. Box office 01228 633766 or book online at www.thesandscentre.co.uk.
