Follow the Yellow Brick Road to Macarthur to Meet the Great and Powerful Oz

July 25, 2013 DESTINATION No Comments Email Email

Discover the magic of one of the world’s most loved films, ‘The Wizard of Oz’, with more than a week of fun-filled activities across the Macarthur region, a 45-minute drive from Sydney’s CBD, where there will be a mix of artists and entertainers, venues and workshops – bringing this fairytale to life.

Kids can sing, dance and clap their way through performances such as Oz Gang Live, Wizard of Oz Storytime and Moovoz Dance Off as well as make, learn and play with activities such as Scrapbooking in Oz, Cup Cake Decorating and Kids Oz Craft Workshop. There will also be a special screening of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ movie and the chance to dress up as your favourite character from the film – one of history’s most popular movies.

On Saturday, August 10, 2013, the Campbelltown Arts Centre will host ‘The Moving Picture Show Goes to Oz’, where a live orchestra will play the movie soundtrack and sound effects to Oz silent movies – just like the old days!

Families are encouraged to join in, with the program including many free activities such as craft sessions and the art contest and exhibition. A ‘Jazz over the Rainbow’ music night for adults is inspired by Oz and the Judy Garland era while The Wizard of Oz Adventure Show will take visitors through Munchkinland, Cornfield, Forest and Emerald City – much like the story itself.

Events – some ticketed and others free – will be held at venues across the Macarthur region, centred at the Wizard of Oz Funland in Leumeah, as well as the Campbelltown Arts Centre, Campbelltown Mall, Quondong Cottage, which houses the Campbelltown Visitor Information Centre, the Square Waffle Restaurant and Farriers Arms (Craft) Cottage.

The events will help support the local charity – 24 Hour Fight Against Cancer Macarthur.
