I'm confused. Are there 2 Wizard of Oz productions planned in London? Someone told me Sadler's Wells was involved in one.

Thanks for the info. I quite fancy seeing it performed by a professional cast. I saw a very good amdram bunch do it in February but the Wicked Witch of the West came over all vampish - more like Cruella de Vil. I know it's just a small point but it spoiled the show for me.

Sounds like the drag queen who did it at Leicester 2 Christmas' ago- lost the whole evil thing to vampish drag!
He/she was replaced the following year when the same show played Southampton last year with Mathew Kelly as the witch.
