The Wiz (Single + Programme)

Michael Jackson and Diana Ross star in this fantastic, fun filled spectacular musical based on the smash hit Broadway show which in turn was drawn from L. Frank Baum's 'The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz'.

In this Motown production, Dorothy (Diana Ross) is a shy Harlem kindergarten teacher who is whisked to a wonderland to follow the yellow brick road. Michael Jackson is the Scarecrow who wants a brain, along with Nipsey Russell as the Tin Man searching for a heart, Ted Ross as the Cowardly Lion, Lena Horne as Glinda the Good Witch and Richard Pryor as the Oz's great wizard. With such a cast, exciting musical numbers and fabulous visual effects, the Wiz will reach every generation of movie-goers.
