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

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).


All screenings will be fully captioned and audio described
