Following the recent announcement that The Wizard of Oz will be transferring to the West End next summer, we visited its home for Christmas – Curve in Leicester.

Puppeteer Ben Thompson currently stars as Toto, and was credited in a glowing review from WhatsOnStage for his realistic antics.

We joined the duo for a morning at the theatre. Our tour included a look backstage, a spot of lunch in the Green Room Café and an acting class with artistic director Nikolai Foster and his pup, Billy.

Check out the video below – after all, there’s no place like home!
