A modern day Wizard of Oz

AUDIENCES followed Dorothy along the yellow brick road during a modern day version of The Wizard of Oz. Clevedon School pupils put on The Wiz at the Valley Road school on December 7, 8 and 9.

The production involved youngsters from all year groups who could be seen on stage but also behind the scenes, controlling the lighting, sound and special effects.

Based on The Funky Wizard of Oz show, which featured gospel and motown music, the production included up-to-date references and modern dance styles.
