Rehearsing to go to Oz
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.
