Bahrain hosted the first show of the popular Broadway Musical ‘The Wizard of Oz’ for the first time in the Kingdom at Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre and will run until the 17th of August 2019.
The show is an adapted version of the all-time classic released by MGM back in 1939 and will include beloved songs from the Oscar-winning movie score as well as favourite scenes from different characters including Dorothy, Toto and their friends the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow. The lavish production features breathtaking special effects, dazzling choreography and classic songs.
The event is a part of Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority’s (BTEA) extensive series of events and activities that aims to attract visitors and tourists from Bahrain and the neighbouring GCC countries throughout the year and is hosted during a key peak season in Bahrain, Eid Al Adha and the summer break.
Hosting the enchanting Broadway musical comes in line with the BTEA’s long term strategy to position Bahrain as a prominent destination for family tourism by attracting international events, providing all members of the family with a unique and unforgettable experience.
