THE END of the rainbow will be in Colne this Easter as the Muni Theatre hosts a pantomime version of The Wizard of Oz.

Shone Productions Ltd will present the show about Dorothy and her adventures on Sunday, April 14.

Children’s TV favourite Barney Harwood will play the Scarecrow while Emmerdale’s Mia Macey and Britannia High’s Sapphire Elia will share the role of Dorothy.

Producer James Shone said: “This magical pantomime features a delicious blend of beautiful scenery, colourful costumes, a live band, dazzling dance routines, great songs and plenty of laughter.

“Follow Dorothy and her adorable four-legged-friend Toto down the Yellow Brick Road to the Merry Old Land of Oz. During their travels, they meet some lovely friends including the scarecrow, tin man and the cowardly lion who needs some courage.

“The four new friends are on a quest to meet the great and powerful Wizard of Oz, which won’t be easy, as the Wicked Witch of the West is determined to stop them by any means necessary.

“I am so excited to be bringing The Wizard of Oz to Colne as part of my Easter tour, it’s a brilliant production and we have such a strong cast to deliver this up-to-date pantomime version of the classic story.

“There is something for the whole family and I know that everyone will have an enjoyable time.”

Barney said he couldn’t wait to bring the beautiful story to the stage causing plenty of mayhem along the way, and said children could meet the actors after the show.
