YOUNG visitors turning out to the coming production of The Wizard of Oz Show at Mounties on October 4 have been urged to dress up as their favourite character.
The show, staged by Youngstars2.com, has been a hit with audiences around the country.
An interactive thriller, it details the adventures of Dorothy, Shakey the Scarecrow and their friends as they follow the yellow brick road to find the wizard.
"There's nothing as exciting for a child than to be singing and dancing with their favourite story book characters," said director Brian Laul. "It's almost like a dream has come true."
Along the way audience members are encouraged to click their heels three times and rap along with the Tinman, roar like a lion, help wake up the sleepy scarecrow and dance with Dorothy.
It's live action mixed with 3D on screen animations, catchy tunes and dazzling costumes.
"Children love to dress up in costumes, fancy clothes and silly hats," Mr Laul said.
"Dressing up can help spark imagination, boost self-esteem and add to the over all fun.
"It's also a great way for parents and children to enjoy the experience of visiting Oz together. That's why we invite children to come dressed up to see the wizard."
The Wizard of Oz Show has been touring the country for the past 12 years.
Tickets for the Mounties show, which starts at 10.30am, range in price from $11 to $17.50 and are available from the venue or ticketek.com.
