Wizard of Oz venue announced

The Wizard of Oz, with Dorothy and Toto chosen by the current BBC reality “Over the Rainbow” programme, will be going into the London Palladium with performances scheduled to start 29th March 2011. To make way for this, Sister Act will close on 1st Jan 2011 putting Sheila Hancock, one of the Dorothy judges and currently starring in the show, off the stage.

Tickets go on sale from 9th May though there will be early access for readers (I believe that is the term!) of the Sun and News of the World.

By the way, one of the Toto judges is Gerry Cott, co-founder of The Boomtown Rats who owns A-Z Animals.
