The Wicked Witches of Oz

Permanent Link to The Wicked Witches of Oz

Acocks Green-based Am Dram Group Stage 27 will be taking to the stage once again on the 27th and 28th January 2017 to perform Peter Nuttall’s The Wicked Witches of Oz at Acocks Green Methodist Church.

A family panto take on the classic Wizard of Oz tale, in which Dorothy and her friends Lion, Tinman and Scarecrow must dodge two wicked old witches and make their way to Oz to try and get back to Aunty Em and her stinky chicken farm, the Birmingham group are performing in aid of Sunfields Children’s Home, a Stourbridge charity that is an independent residential special school with over 80 years of experience in supporting boys and girls, aged 6 – 19 years, with complex needs, including autism.

Tickets are priced at £6 for a single and £19 for a family ticket, and the show promises to be a great day out to banish away the January blues whilst being kind to the purse strings.  

The show will be performed at Acocks Green Methodist Church, Shirley Road, Acocks Green, Birmingham, B27 7YE, and tickets can be purchased via www.stage27.co.uk or by contacting info [at] stage27 [dot] co [dot] uk/0751 212 6594.  Performances are at 7.30pm on Fri 27th Jan and 2pm (relaxed matinee performance) and 6.45pm on Sat 28th Jan 2017.

Georgina Forrest, Partnership Development Manager for Sunfield said: “This festive time of year and children go hand-in-hand so it’s amazing to have the support from all at Stage 27, their efforts will make a positive difference to the lives of our students with complex needs and autism. By getting to know each child, and tailoring our care and education services to their needs, we make a meaningful difference – often when children have been unable to thrive elsewhere. Our vision is a world where people with complex needs and autism succeed and flourish.” For more information please visit: https://www.sunfield.org.uk/
