Oz and Beyond: The Margaret Hamilton Stories

John Ahlin
Jean Tafler

The amazing tale of how a gentle kindergarten teacher from Cleveland scared the living daylights out of every last one of us…and the brains, heart, and courage it took to be America’s character woman.

In a surprising, fun, haunting, and delightful evening, Jean Tafler portrays Margaret Hamilton, whose Wicked Witch of the West has left an indelible mark on us all. If there is one movie we all share it is The Wizard of Oz, but it is time to pay attention to the woman behind the cackle.

Spend 85 wonderful minutes with Margaret Hamilton, for she has true and terrific stories to tell.

is here to create, discover and rediscover great characters in drama, history, literature and modern mythology. As Neil Simon says; “Plays are about people”, and our goal is to focus on breathing life into the larger-than-life characters that people humanity, and to celebrate, inspire and communicate, through theatre and other media, the potential in each of us.
