AN ORIGINAL SUNSHINE COAST STORY TOLD BY CALOUNDRA’S CELEBRATED INCLUSIVE THEATRE ENSEMBLE, PASSAGE!
Centacare’s inclusive theatre ensemble, Passage, bring their reinterpretation of the seminal Wizard Of Oz through a journey of famous Sunshine Coast landmarks. Follow the story of a young Caloundra woman, Terri, in search of her identity as social media dictates her life. This wonderful, heart-filling and joyful ensemble comedy is in collaboration with professional, leading Sunshine Coast local artists and musicians.
The famous Yellow Brick Road becomes a bus journey with a comedic bumbling bus driver and Emerald City becomes The Big Pineapple Festival as our Dorothy (renamed Dot) searches for Toto the dog (renamed Gogo).
Passage is part of Centacare’s social and life skills offering, which supports people with disability to meet new people, learn new skills and build confidence in the areas that matter to them most.
