James Brining, Artistic Director of Leeds Playhouse, said: “We are delighted that this outstanding and hugely popular production will play at The Bridge Theatre this Christmas. The show was a huge hit here in Leeds, breaking all box office records and becoming our most popular Christmas show. It was a great pleasure to work with Sally Cookson and her brilliant creative team who brought this classic family adventure to life with such imagination and we’re in no doubt the production will thrill audiences in London just as much.”
This Christmas, Leeds Playhouse will present a brand new production of spectacular musical The Wizard of Oz, the first Christmas show in their newly redeveloped Quarry theatre.
