Hot Date: Ross Petty’s Yellow Brick Road

The colourful cast of Ross Petty's reimagining of The Wizard of Oz

NOVEMBER 25 TO JANUARY 6 The Wizard of Oz gets a major overhaul courtesy of producer Ross Petty, complete with winking asides, audience participation and a man in a dress. The end result is a wonderful and wacky family musical. Petty himself steps into the role of the Wicked Witch of the West, while Elicia MacKenzie, who found success as Maria in the Toronto staging of The Sound of Music, slides into Dorothy’s crimson footwear, and Yvan Pedneault who most recently entertained audiences as an aspiring singer in Rock of Ages, is the Tin Man in search of a heart. Elgin Theatre, $27 to $85; call 1-855-599-9090 or visit here to buy tickets.
