Everybody will be familiar with the 1939 film production of The Wizard of Oz, in which Judy Garland plays the part of Dorothy, the young girl from Kansas who dreams of faraway places. The show features well-known songs like, ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’, ‘We’re Off To See The Wizard’, ‘Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead’, and ‘The Merry Old Land Of Oz’.
The local cast of The Wizard of Oz, numbering almost 40, features the usual mix of new and familiar faces and they will be joined this year by 72 local children. All have been rehearsing since early September and together with the production team and committee, they are confident that The Wizard of Oz will be spectacular and memorable musical treat, when it hits the stage in a few weeks time.
