Stratford-upon-Avon College’s ever-growing Musical Theatre department sees its first group of BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Musical Theatre students perform their final show to complete their course.
The classic children’s story of L. Frank Baum’s ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ has been dramatised into many theatrical works. Whilst staying true to William F. Brown’s text and Charlie Smalls’ music and lyrics, the company has adapted its work to create its own interpretation, setting ‘Oz’ within the British Isles and following Dorothy on her journey across the UK, meeting the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion and almighty Wiz himself, until she finally finds her way back home to Kansas.
Producer and Director of the production, Michelle King says, “Our small ensemble cast of ten embarked on this project in March and with limited rehearsal time and many performers playing multiple roles, it has been no mean feat getting the production on stage! It has been a challenging, creative and enjoyable process - most especially seeing these young enthusiastic performers develop their skills and passion for musical theatre.”
Performances are on 25th, 26th and 27th May 2011 at 7:30pm in the Gordon Vallins Studio at Stratford-upon-Avon College. Tickets cost £7 (£5 concessions). For ticket sales please call the Box Office on 01789 266245 or email@example.com.
The production is suitable for all ages. It does contain some flashing lights and smoke.
