NO REST FOR
BUDDING actors from Focus Music Musical Theatre Group are ready to hit the stage for an adaption of Wicked the Musical.
Writer/director Lee Morunga, who performed with The Lion King, said Wicked Junior featured the much-loved characters from The Wizard of Oz.
“The show features the Wicked Witch of the West, Elphaba Thropp, and the Good Witch Galinda Upland, who tell their story as young teens,” she said.
“The musical is all about their life growing up at Shizz University and how the characters Scarecrow, Tin Man and the scared lion come about.”
Ms Morunga said Ngahina Dunn, Abby Letts, Jarni Sydenham and Hayley Dolling would take on the shared roles of Elphaba and Galinda.
“These budding Kalamunda tweens are ready to take on the world,” she said.
“All 12 students have worked super hard over the semester learning songs, choreography, scripts, character work, costume changes and cues.
“I am incredibly proud to have a bunch of wickedly talented and commited young musical theatre performers.”
Wicked Junior is showing on Saturday, June 23, at 5pm at the Kalamunda Performing Arts Centre. To book, call 0402 938 733 or tickets available at the door, adults $20, kids $5, children under five free.
