J3-J6 were transported from Kansas to Oz last week in their production of The Wizard of OZ. The audience waited with anticipation as the lights came up on the cast. The Munchkins looked amazing in their rainbow coloured costumes, as did all the J6 main characters, with all their make-up on. Who can forget the appearance of the cyclone and the singing and dancing yellow brick road!
Everyone went on the journey following the yellow brick road with Dorothy (in her ruby slippers), Toto, the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion to the glittering gates of Oz. After a successful mission to kill the Wicked Witch of the West and the revelation that the Wizard of OZ was not a wizard at all, Dorothy and her new friends realised that they had the ability to fulfil their own dreams themselves, with a little guidance from Glinda, the good witch. Singing and dancing along to the old classic songs, all pupils left with huge smiles on their faces, having all grown so much in self-confidence.
What an amazing experience and my thanks go out to all who helped make it possible for me to share my vision of Oz with you. It’s out on DVD soon.
