More about The Wizard of Oz

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award to The Wizard of Oz:

"The theatre offering for children and youth is often criticised for being artistically not very ambitious or innovative. Instead of experiments one chooses the traditional, in which the audience knows what to get, and gets what it thinks it wants. Because of this, it is delightful that several of this year's nominees in different ways challenge our expectations to what theatre for children and youth is, and how it can be done. This year's award winner met the children s desire for knowledge, curiosity and involvement in theatre with an extraordinary courageous openness, without losing the grip of the work s magic, direction or progression of plot. A unique and exclusive theatre experience in which a physically participating audience was permitted its own role in the fairytale.

The best production for children and youth award of the year goes to The Wizard of Oz."
