Make friends with Cinderella (Macarthur Chronicle Jan 24, 2017)

MEETING Cinderella maybe every child’s dream and The Wizard of Oz Funland, Leumeah, is fulfilling this wish with a fun and interactive version of the fairy tale. The Cinderella Princess-themed day, on Wednesday from 11am, will give children a chance to meet Cinderella and dress up before helping her tell her story on stage.

The Wizard of Oz Funland director Brian Laul said he was always looking for various fun activities for children to join in. “Cinderella is perfect for that because it has something for the girls and the boys,” he said.

“Self-image is really important for children and Cinderella is a positive role model of what happens if you act in a positive and loving way.”

Parents can also watch their children perform on the stage. “There is more social interaction when you do things with others and parents love it because it’s something positive and different for children,” Mr Laul said. Participants can enjoy face painting, mini golf and a free ice cream to cool off. “It’s a magical experience.Children can come and let their mind run wild,’’ Mr Laul said.

Aussie Stars in Macarthur Chronicle Oct 25, 2016

AUDIENCES in Shanghai, China were delightfully entertained when Leumeah’s The Wizard of Oz show took part in a week of performances for the This Is Australia Festival.

Director Brian Laul. from The Wizard of Oz Funland said Chinese audiences got into the spirit of things despite the obvious language barrier.

“Because this is a highly interactive version of the (Wizard of Oz) story with lots of comedy and music that today’s kids can identify with, it’s lots of fun for everyone,” Mr Laul said.

Mr Laul said it was an honour for the show to be selected to represent the nation at the showcase of Australian products, food, wine and entertainment in Shanghai’s Di Shui Hu Recreational Park. The show was so well received that it has been invited back to China next year.

“They’ve even challenged Shakey the Scarecrow to do the Hokey Pokey in Mandarin, so that’s going to be fun,” the show’s program co-ordinator Christerine Laul said. The show has completed more than4,000 performances around the world.
