DOROTHYToto, I can’t think of anything to do. Nothing ever happens around here. We haven’t even had a decent tornado to hide from in ages.
TOTOOoh, I’ve thought of something!
DOROTHYThis better be good… And nothing to do with bones…
TOTOThe WIZARD OF OZ is coming to The Turner Centre, Kerikeri, in exactly ONE MONTH! Let’s book some tickets!
DOROTHYWell, that is a wonderful idea, Toto! You know how much I’d love to see The Wizard!

Later in the Year: A Cracker of a Show!

4 & 5 Dec | The Turner Centre Kerikeri

Following on from The Wizard of Oz by our youth members in mid-October, The Stage Door Theatre Company are bringing you a laugh-a-minute comedy revue called ‘Christmas Cracker’ full of fun sketches! We’ll also be raising money for a very good cause – Mid-Northland Hospice from ticket sales.

Sketches include the failed dinner party, a typical evening with Netflix, an aging Romeo and Juliet, the Blind Date, Les Mis in 4 Minutes and plenty more.

Tickets are now on sale through iTicket and the Turner Centre Box Office. Two performances only, so don’t miss your chance for some festive fun.
