Produced By Gill Harrington
Malanda Theatre Company’s Youth Theatre Group is in rehearsal for ‘The Wizard of Oz’ which will be performed on June 17, 18, and 19 June at the Majestic Theatre.
The production is based on the Judy Garland film with all those popular songs including ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’, ‘Follow the Yellow Brick Road’ and ‘Ding dong the Witch is Dead’.
The interest in this production was so great that it was decided to double cast the major roles with casts appearing in alternate performances.
The cast includes:
Sahara Gobius and Stella Kanowski as Dorothy
Lily Moore and Matthew English as the Scarecrow
Heaven Arici and Imogen Newton as Tin Man
James Mahoney and Indio Myles as the Lion
Oliver Perks and Lilykay Oliver as Dorothy’s dog Toto
Mimi Arnold-Nott and Buckley Weirman as the Wicked Witch of the West
Holly Henricks and Rosa Askey-Doran as Glinda, the Good Witch
And Tom O’Connor as the Wizard of Oz
A cast of more than 50 Munchkins, Citizens of Oz and Winkie Guards means that this will be a colourful and energetic production which should appeal to people of all ages.
