Imagine being caught in a magical cyclone in Cairns which lands you in Cloncurry, where you wear a pair of silver pluggers and follow the red dust road to Glencore to speak with the Mine Manager.
Does this sound familiar, like a spin-off of The Wiz, but with local references?
Well that's whats in store for Mount Isa audiences next month.
Every two years the Good Shepherd Catholic College produce a musical production and on Saturday June 1 at the Mount Isa Civic Centre their production of The Wiz will be live on stage.
The College's rendition of The Wiz is an adaption of the 1970s soul version of The Wizard of Oz which featured Micheal Jackson and Dianna Ross.
Producer of the musical spin-off and school principal, Peter Scott, said they have localised the play to North West Queensland.
"Instead of a tornado lifting Dorothy off to Oz from Kanzas, Dot is caught up in a cyclone in Cairns and is dumped just outside Cloncurry," Mr Scott said.
Other local references include some of the three companions she meets while travelling along the red dirt road, the scarecrow, instead of a tin man, a retired Country and Western singer and the cowardly lion is a frilled-neck lizard.
The production is an epic performance featuring more than 30 students on the stage and many more backstage.
"Besides the actors we have students working on sets, making props and costumes, and preparing advertising and promotions," Mr Scott said.
There will be two performances of The Wiz on Saturday June 1. A matinee at 1.30pm and an evening show at 7.30pm.
Tickets for the performance are on sale at the Civic Centre.
Students $15 and adults $25.
