Wizard of Oz, the 1939 film starring Judy Garland, is regarded as one of the top 100 films of all time (Remember it? How it starts in black and white and turns dramatically to colour?). Suddenly the story has become popular in Cambridgeshire as a stage show as well.
Cottenham Theatre Workshop is first out of the box with a lively retelling of the well-known tale written and directed by Gary Unwin-Riches accompanied by lots of music and dance to put you in a good mood for the festivities ahead! There are good and bad witches and red shoes and a known assortment of characters without a brain, courage or heart – but it has a way of coming right in the end. . .
Wizard of Oz (a Wicked Production) will be on stage at Cottenham Village College from Wednesday 30 November to Friday 2 December at 7.30pm, and two matinees – at 1.30pm and 5.30pm – on Saturday 3 December.
Bookings through www.cottenhamtheatre.com or TicketSource (telephone bookings 0333 666 3366 will incur an additional service charge). The ‘booking office’ for in-person buyers will be at Cottenham Community Centre coffee shop, Cottenham High Street, each Saturday in November from 11am to 1pm.
