"The Wizard of Oz" is a classic fairytale, intriguing since the day of its creation. The musical which State Puppet Theatre – Stara Zagora is producing is a real challenge for the staging team and the young troupe with talented actors. The genre itself requires both excellent acting and great music and dance culture. 

All children and grown-ups are familiar with the characters and the plot of “The Wizard of Oz”. This is what brings both young and not so young in the audience. The play is synthetic, including puppets, drama, dance, music and movie. The stage design, costumes and multimedia are created with lots of imagination. 

The staging team wanted to keep the original classical version of the story but using different means of expression and fantasy to transform “The Wizard of Oz” into a modern production.
