"bursting with playfulness, a loving romp through Oz while retelling one of our most beloved stories." - Aussie Theatre 

"Musically the production is a triumph. Peter Hayward leads an outstanding pit orchestra, creating a lavish sound which does full justice to the classic score of songs and the extensive underscoring, complementing the performances." - Stage Whispers

"Laura Murphy is Dorothy, bringing all her sensibility from children's television into a warm and wide-eyed charmer, all innocence and sweetness and vocal clarity. Her rag-tag bunch of Ozian friends are heavy on the slapstick (the audience shrieked with laughter) and yet still maintained the integrity of the show." - Aussie Theatre 

"Adam Scicluna as Zeke and the Cowardly Lion ('Courage!') has a magnificent time hamming it up and stealing the show every chance he gets, and was especially impressive with his huge tenor aria, 'If I Were King of the Forest' – brilliant. The audience was in fits over his hilarious antics and in-jokes, and the children loved him." - ArtsHub
