Re­hears­ing to go to Oz

Manawatu Guardian - - FROM THE EDITOR -

Frey­berg High School stu­dents have been re­hears­ing The Wizard of Oz since the be­gin­ning of the school year.

Au­di­tions were held in Oc­to­ber at the same time the school Wiz Band started prac­tis­ing. Arts co­or­di­na­tor Tina Bell said the mu­sic was quite dif­fi­cult but the band was “amaz­ing” and had mas­tered the mu­si­cal score.

Al­to­gether 65 stu­dents are on stage, 25 in the band and another 10 up­stairs on light­ing.

The Wizard of Oz per­for­mances are at the school, 7.30pm, May 29 — June 2.

AI­DEN Wil­son (Scare­crow) is sur­rounded by Emer­ald City Beau­ti­cians, Olivia Man­der­son, He­lena Mer­cer and Abbey Dodds.

AI­DEN Wil­son (Scare­crow), Dana Purdy (Dorothy), Jor­gia Knight (Lion), and Kaea Rakatairi-Paul (Tin Man)
