The brick road has been painted yellow, the wicked witch is polishing her broomstick and Dorothy is shining up her ruby slippers.
Yes, it's nearly time for Dereham Theatre Company's Youth Group (DOSYTco) to head to The Emerald City for their next musical - The Wizard of Oz.
Led by the production team of Anna Lawrence, David Blake, Adam Wright and Jodie Quirke, the group of children between the ages of 8 to 18, will recreate this wonderful show which includes memorable songs such as Somewhere over the Rainbow and Ding Dong the Witch is Dead.
Costumes have been provided by Dereham Theatre Costumes and make up is being crafted by Sophie Blanks.
The cast features Emily Baker as Dorothy, Reece King as the Lion, Harrison Matwij as the Tin Man and Josiah Blake as the Scarecrow.
Wizard of Oz is being performed from Wednesday, April 5 until Saturday, April 8 at Dereham Memorial Hall, nightly at 7.30pm as well as a 2.30pm matinee on the Saturday.
