Maddie received rave reviews in her lead role!
Maddie from Year 10 beat several other young girls from around Weston-super-Mare to win the lead role, Dorothy Gale, in the Weston-super-Mare Operatic Society, Oppitts production of L. Frank Baum’s "The Wizard of Oz".
The story of The Wizard of Oz has endured time to remain one of the best loved fairy tales and, coupled with the musical score from the original 1939 MGM motion picture, the show captures the hearts of audiences from all around the world.
“A star in the making” and “first rate performance” were some of the accolades Maddie received and Maddie’s “Over the Rainbow” was even likened to Judy Garland’s.
In addition to Maddie, several other Broadoak students were also in the cast with Bethany as Miss Guiltch/Wicked Witch of the West, Jack as Professor Marvel/wizard of Oz, Daniel as the Munchkin Mayor and Cara, Mollie, Sophie & Molly in the ensemble.
The Wizard of Oz was performed at the Blakehay Theatre in Weston-super-Mare from 28th – 30th July.
