A DANCE company is going over the rainbow to produce its latest show.

MalDo Productions will perform The Wizard of Oz at the Easington Social Welfare Centre later this month.

Performances will be held from 6.45pm each night from Wednesday, July 17, to Friday, July 19, with tickets at £5 for adults and £3 for under 12s.

The show will be directed by Richenda Blakelock and features a cast aged from six to their mid-20s.

Show producers say they are pushing to it the best show they have ever performed.

Spokesman Sarah Taylor said: “The cast have been working hard for months, and we promise that the show will feature amazing choreography and brilliant singing.”

Richenda said: “Directing this show has been challenging at times, but I believe our cast will put on such a fantastic performance that you’ll go home smiling. We’re remaining as faithful to the original story as we can, and even feature a real life Toto, played by my nine-month-old puppy Emrys.”
