Rutherglen Reformer - - News - School news

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!”
