Dazzling performance of The Wizard of Oz
Fernhill School pupils were following the yellow brick road as they put on their own performance of the Wizard of Oz.
The production, written and performed by senior pupils, under the guidance of their English teacher Mr Gillespie, was staged over two separate evenings and a matinee exclusively for Fernhill Primary and nursery school pupils.
Parents, staff and fellow pupils were dazzled by the quality of acting and singing on show and all commented that the show had been a fantastic display of teamwork and talent.
Of the experience, Erin McQuillan, who played Dorothy, said: “Being part of the pantomime has been an amazing experience.
“I was scared at the prospect of learning 58 pages of dialogue but like everyone else I got on with it and enjoyed every minute - from the many hours of rehearsals to performing on the night.
“I have made friendships that will last forever and laughed till I cried at rehearsals.
“I hope others will share in my enthusiasm and enjoyment in shows to come. Performing in the Wizard of Oz was an unforgettable experience!”
