Going the Distance

Digital Stage

Tickets £15

When there’s no light at the end of the tunnel and the chips are down, you can count on Eggborough Community Theatre to fight back...

March 2020. Theatres across the country go dark. Hundreds of cherished arts centres face the prospect of permanent closure. But that isn’t going to stop the Eggborough Community Theatre… as they fight to save their local venue with the genius idea to put on a fundraising production of ‘Wizard’* (*inspired by but for rights purposes certainly not based on ‘The Wizard of Oz’).

Get ready for a brand new comedy about a little theatre with a huge challenge.

Sara Crowe stars as 'Em, Nicole Evans as 'Billie', Shobna Gulati as 'Vic', Sarah Hadland as 'Rae', Merch Husey as 'Kem, Matthew Kelly as 'Frank', Emma McDonald as 'Gail', and Penny Ryder as 'Maggie' with Stephen Fry as the 'Narrator'.
