Q: What facilities do we need for you to stage the show?

A: THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF OZ is designed to be a "pop-up" theatre show. We bring everything with us: scenery, costumes, lights, sound, music and actors ... and the return of our amazing WONDERWALL ("the Wonderwall of Oz!") - first seen in last year's PETER PAN. We will work with whatever facilities you have, but the more that you can provide the better the experience. We can work in spaces from auditoriums to playgrounds - we just need access to electricity.

Q: How big should the staging area be?

A: The show requires a performing space (preferably slightly above floor level) of approximately 15 ft wide by 15 ft deep and a minimum of height of 8 ft (4.6m wide x 4.6m deep x 2.5m high).

Q: What kind of seating is required?

A: We will work around whatever seating arrangements you have in your school.

Q: How long does it take you to set-up before the show and clear-up afterwards?

A: We need time (ideally the afternoon/evening the day before the shows) to get-in/fit-up our video wall. On performance days the preparation time is 60 minutes before the first show. The strike/get-out time is 60 minutes after the final show.

Q: What is the story or the show?

A: A full synopsis of the show can be found on our SYNOPSIS page. (coming soon)

Q: Will there be any scary characters in the show?

A: No. We aim to entertain children by making them laugh not cry. Even the Wicked Woman of the West has a kind heart.

Q: Is there any audience participation in the show?

A: Our shows often have interactive elements in them - but in THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF OZ we need brains, heart and courage to make this work!

Q: Should our Emirati children and parents have concerns with regards to the 'cultural' aspect of the story?

A: Our shows always teach a strong moral to our young audiences. The world-famous "modernised fairy tale" of THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF OZ is the story of Dorothy and her new friends, who go in search of The Great Oz, looking for answers to their problems.
In the end, they find strength in friendship and learn that the qualities they needed were within themselves the whole time.

The story has been carefully adapted to ensure that mention of ‘Wizards’, ‘Witches’ and anything that may be  inappropriate to UAE audiences has been removed. 
The costumes have all been designed with modesty and the UAE in mind.

Q: What about the recent changes to UAE licensing regulations? Will our school/venue be compliant?

A: Yes. We have been working closely with DTCM in Dubai and ADEC in Abu Dhabi to ensure that our production and the venues where it is performed is fully compliant with the latest regulations. Our associate company in the UAE will work with you to ensure that all paperwork and compliance issues are dealt with prior to the performance at your school.

Remember - S4K International has a reputation for "WORLD CLASS EXCELLENCE"!
