Get set for a night of Motown as Nailsea Musicals takes to the stage with The Wiz.

The show sees the youth section and adults performing together in a Motown musical retelling of the classic Wizard Of Oz.

Dorothy and her friends Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion are played by four teenagers from Backwell School, while the witches and the Wiz are brought to life by the adult members.

With a lively supporting chorus, the show promises to be full of fun.

Nailsea Musicals picked up the Noda Excellence Award in 2018 after receiving four nominations from the Somerset Fellowship of Drama for best sound, effects, props and best supporting actress.

The group's latest performance is at Scotch Horn Leisure Centre, Brockway, on May 17-18 with performances at 7.30pm both days. There will also be a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Tickets, priced £10-12, are available online at or from Nailsea Music Shop, in High Street.
