THERE is no place like the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre this weekend as they welcome Ballet Theatre UK in their latest Christmas tour, The Wizard of Oz.

Enjoy Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tinman, and Lion, (and yes Toto too) as they seek the Wonderful Wizard to find that there’s no place like home.

The Wizard of Oz is a two act, full-length, ballet adaptation of the iconic tale by L. Frank Baum, told through the magic of classical dance.

Set to a classical score which brings the story to life, this production is family friendly and is the perfect way to introduce children to the classical ballet.

The production is presented with beautiful backdrops, stunning theatrical sets and costumes evoking the iconic sketches by W.W. Denslow, from the original publication.

The original concept of Ballet Theatre UK was to provide a platform for talented young dancers to perform the highest quality of ballet in provincial theatres throughout the UK.

By doing so the company could provide access to the classical art form to audiences who may not otherwise have been able to witness live ballet.

The company has grown and now engages more than 30 international dancers, featured in multiple productions per year.

The last decade has seen the company earn its place in the dance industry by performing new work of the highest calibre, both nationally and internationally.

As the company has passed its ten year anniversary, the future is clear for them - to continue to be known as a high-quality bespoke ballet company providing audiences globally with modern productions of the iconic classics.

Ballet Theatre UK aim to raise the bar with regards to quality, offering only the very best in British Ballet.

The Wizard of Oz will be coming to the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre on Saturday, November 30 at 7:30pm.
