John Wood set to dazzle at the Roxy!

May 3, 2008

It’s not every day that an actor as well known as John Wood appears live on stage in Bingara. So it comes as no surprise that John Wood’s popularity is ensuring that tickets to the comedy classic The Club are in high demand. Over 150 tickets have already been sold, with four weeks to go before this hugely entertaining production debuts at The Roxy on Friday 30th May.

Judging from the interest to date, and with a number of enquires for group bookings from across the region, this show is expected to sell out.

John Wood is a veteran of the Australian entertainment industry, having appeared in numerous roles on stage and screen. The 2006 TV Week Logie Awards’ "Race for Gold" took the general public and the media by storm – John Wood had been nominated for the Gold Logie (for Australian Television’s most popular personality) for the 10th year in a row and voting only ceased when the broadcast went to air. The room erupted when Maggie Tabberer announced "JOHN WOOD" had won the Gold Logie.

In 1976, he appeared in ABC TV’s groundbreaking Power Without Glory for which he won a Best Supporting Actor Logie. John starred in the hit drama Rafferty’s Rules from 1984 to 1989 and in 1988 and 1989 John received the TV Week Logie Award for Most Outstanding Actor. In 1993, John landed the role of Tom Croydon in one of Australia’s most popular TV dramas Blue Heelers which ran for an astonishing 12 years.

The Club, written by Australia’s most renowned playwright David Williamson, is one of the greatest plays ever produced in this country.

The national tour of The Club has broken all records as the longest tour for an Australian production. It will tour to 74 venues across the country over 32 weeks before arriving at The Roxy.

With the rave reviews that the production has received, it is easy to see why it has been in such demand. The Sunday Mail writes "[John Wood’s] slapstick timing and obvious love of the material and the character make this a must see version of one of Australia’s greatest plays."
