SEASON’S SHOWINGS
The yellow brick road leads to Trinity Theatre this Christmas, follow it and arrive at an Emerald City of entertainment…

We’re off to see The Wizard of Oz at Trinity Theatre this Christmas (December 14 – January 3). From Munchkinland to the Emerald City, the technicolour Land of Oz comes to life in this dazzling production from the team behind Oliver! and Cinderella. A familiar troupe – Dorothy, a scarecrow, a tin man, and a cowardly lion – prove themselves against the Wicked Witch of the West in this beloved feel-good adventure. Look out for a certain furry four-legged cast member, Dorothy’s faithful companion Toto. From a tornado-blown departure to heel-clicking return, audiences will be carried along by familiar songs from the Oscar-winning film score, including Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Follow the Yellow Brick Road.

There’s no place like home at Christmas, but Trinity’s The Wizard of Oz is worth leaving the house for.
The festive cheer continues with a candlelit concert from guitarist Richard Durrant (Wednesday December 20), as well as the return of Trinity’s Christmas Comedy Café (2 and 7 – 9 December). Top-fl ight comedians take to the foyer stage for an intimate dinner show, with a slap-up meal and a glass of bubbly thrown in – leave the cracker jokes at home, you’ll be full up and chuckled out by the night’s end.

The run up to Christmas sees plenty of action here too. Anarchic improv-troupe The Noise Next Door will also be dropping in (Thursday November 16), spinning out punchy skits and witty songs from audience suggestions, while earlier in the month we host TV regulars Andy Parsons (November 2) and Gary Delaney (November 11).

There’s plenty of seasonal entertainment for children too, with Crafty’s Creepy Castle (November 5) providing a Halloween hoot for families and young children. If it’s something more traditional you’re after, the charming classical tale of Hansel & Gretel follows a week after (Sun November 12).
