IT'S Wizard of Oz like you've never seen it before.

Youngstars2.com's The Wizard of Oz Show is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the original Wizard of Oz movie with a Yellow Brick Road Tour around Queensland during the July school holidays.

The cast is heading to Gladstone's GECC on Saturday, July 5, from 10.30am to 11.20am.

Click your heels together and get ready to follow a yellow brick road full of fun, adventure and wacky characters.

Kids can rap with the Tinman, roar like a lion, wake up sleepy Shakey the Scarecrow and dance with Dorothy in this interactive, new adaptation of America's best-loved fairy tale.

This is no sit-down-and-watch affair - the kids are even invited to come dressed as their favourite characters to celebrate their visit to the wizard.

Live action comes together with 3D animation on screen, catchy tunes and loads of interactive fun in this 'toto-ally Oz-some' treat ideal for two to eight-year-olds.

The Wizard of Oz Show is about more than giving kids a good time.

It spreads a message of hope and self-esteem to the young.

Bring along a toy or book for the show's Children's Hospital Toy Appeal.

Tickets are $19 for A reserve seats, and $16 for B reserve.
