THE Wizard of Oz starring drag superstar The Vivienne is coming to Llandudno's Venue Cymru. 

Direct from The London Palladium, the sensational new production is one of the world’s most beloved musicals.

Colwyn Bay's (RuPaul’s Drag Race UK winner and Dancing On Ice star) The Vivienne stars as The Wicked Witch Of The West and Gary Wilmot will play The Wizard.

In September, The Vivienne revealed that securing the role of The Wicked Witch Of The West in the magical production was an "honour".

They said on social media: "Gagged! Can finally announce this!

"I am honoured with playing the Wicked Witch Of The West in the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Michael Harrison production of The Wizard Of Oz!

"I can’t believe this happening. From playing the Tin Man as a child to this iconic character."


The unforgettable adventure features the original score from the Oscar-winning MGM film including Over The Rainbow, Follow The Yellow Brick Road and We're Off To See The Wizard with additional songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

Join Dorothy, Toto (of course!) and friends on a trip down the yellow brick road to the merry old land of Oz.

There’s no place like Venue Cymru next year! The show will run between March 5 and 10 2024.
