The Wizard of Oz-twick
This year we were taken on a magical tour of the Land of Oz (twick). All our favourite characters from the Wizard of Oz were there, but not all just as we remember them! We saw tall Munchkins, who thought they were small, a camp guard who was very “camp”, and, most surprisingly of all, a Wizard who turned out to be a Wizardess!
There were special effects galore, including thunder, a hot air balloon and an amazing flying house. The costumes were both colourful and extravagant.
The story followed (more or less!) the original story of the film, with all ending well. Dorothy went back home safely, The Wicked Witch was vanquished and the Good Fairy triumphed.
A full house attended on the Over 65s night, followed by record audiences on Friday and Saturday.
In addition to the cast, thanks are due to Sue Goold and Beverley Carter for writing the script and, behind the scenes, Denise Candlin; Richard Caperon; Lizz Cook; Sheila Gooch; Peter Goold; Ian Greenhalgh; Melanie Greenhalgh; Christine Hooley; John Hooley; Debi Parker; Lauren Sharples and all the members of the Catering Committee, who provided such a tasty meal to the Over 65s.
We were particularly pleased to welcome new members Andrew Booth, Debi Parker and Lauren Sharples.
