Wizard Of Oz

Wizard Of Oz
5-8 June 2019

Petersfield Theatre Group are thrilled to announce that our June 2019 show will be The Wizard of Oz. A well-loved classic that we can’t wait to bring to Petersfield Festival Hall.

We’re off to see the wizard…

Join Petersfield Theatre Group on a journey down the yellow brick road to the shimmering Emerald City.

The Wizard of Oz tells the well-loved tale of Dorothy, who’s whisked ‘Over the Rainbow’ in a whirlwind by a tornado to the magical land of Oz. There, she chooses to ‘Follow the Yellow Brick Road’ to see the Wizard. Along the way, she meets a Scarecrow that wishes for a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who lacks courage.

Come along for an evening of family entertainment presented by an award-winning local group.

The extraordinary story of German POW Bert Trautmann.  Talent-spotted playing football in the camp by the manager of St Helens Town, he stayed on in England at the end of the war and married the manager’s daughter.  Facing down hostility and abuse for being German, he went on to be signed by Manchester City, securing victory for his team in the 1956 Cup Final despite a broken neck.  Starring David Kross (The Reader) and Freya Mavor, and available to us within a month of cinema release, this promises to be a huge hit with Moviola audiences.  If you only book one film this season, make it this one!

“Rosenmueller’s film may struggle to articulate the complexities of Trautmann’s character, but the role he played in changing public opinion can’t be ignored and, if ever there was a story of forgiveness and reconciliation that needed retelling right now, it would surely be his. He arrived as an enemy, but went on to become the first foreign player to be voted England’s Player of the Year. Football alone may not be able to heal a nation’s deep wounds, but The Keeper suggests that, for at least 90 minutes, it can induce a much-needed sense of cohesion.”  thesetpieces.com

Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie slug it out as the rival Tudor queens in this enjoyable if fanciful historical drama, with David Tennant as the fulminating misogynistic preacher John Knox.

“While Ronan is terrific, Robbie has arguably the more difficult role, conjuring an engaging portrait of someone whose position has made her “more man than woman”. It’s a credit to Robbie that Elizabeth’s anguish shines through the stony visage behind which she is increasingly forced to hide.” The Guardian
“Making her feature debut as director, Josie Rourke presents an unevenly balanced juggling act of fact and faction, which she describes as “a Renaissance version of Heat”.  Scriptwriter Beau Willimon gives the material a keen feminist slant, while bolting on contemporary diversity values, upfront sexuality and clear allusions to current fake news debates.”  Radio Times
 “Lush and ravishing period piece.”  The Telegraph
