Ease on down to Fleckney

The Wiz
The Wiz

The Ensemble Theatre Company is presenting The Wiz at Fleckney Village Hall.

The soul and motown twist on The Wizard of Oz can be seen on Friday June 17 and Saturday June 18.

This alternative version sees the Scarecrow iplagued by wise-cracking crows, a Tin Man smoother than a bar of Galaxy and the Lion is cowardly but also charismatic.

Over the course of their journey Home they meet not one, not two, but three sassy witches, a gang of biker monkies, and a Wiz who may not be all he seems.

The sound track has a Motown, R&B and soul undercurrent and catchy songs designed to leave the audience singing and tapping your feet. There is also energetic dance routines, confetti canons and more costume changes than an Elton John concert.

The show starts at 7.30pm on Friday June 17 and 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday June 18.

Tickets are just £8. To book tickets through the website visit www.ensembletc.com/tickets/ or by calling 0116 298 2413.
