Unfortunately, if you missed it, no amount of heel clicking will take you back to Oz to see what has been described as an amazing, brilliant, fantastic, inspiring, energetic, and entertaining school production.
Students from all years took to the Broadoak stage for three consecutive nights to perform Charlie Smalls’ The Wiz based on a book by William Brown (an adaptation of the classic children’s novel, The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz by Frank Baum).
The stunning cast was headed up by non-other than our Head Girl, Madison playing the lead role of Dorothy. With such a large number of very talented auditionees, we were able to double cast some of the leading roles making this the largest principle cast Broadoak has had for a musical production. Every week since May, students have been rehearsing with Mrs Aves, Mrs Harvey, Ms Back and Miss Coleman and Mr Bache and it was clear from the high standard of performance to a full house each night, that the commitment and hard work paid off. The solo songs were outstanding this year, even though for some, it was their debut vocal performance and the energy in the whole cast numbers from start to finish captured the audience who on occasions, even joined in!!
This year, the show boasted it’s new rotating set (periaktoi) built by the technology department that will be used in shows for many years to come and the textiles department got involved in making costumes and preparing our yellow brick road.
A huge CONGRATULATIONS!! is sent from the Performing Arts Team to every student who took part both on and off the stage and we would like to take the opportunity to thank both staff and parents for all your support over the months leading up to the show but more importantly for coming out to watch the show.
We are looking forward to announcing the next show but in the meantime, don’t miss the opportunity to see some of our performers again and more in the Christmas Carol Concert 6pm at St Paul’s Church on Monday 18th December.
