STUDENTS at Hanham Woods Academy staged a spectacular production of The Wizard of Oz.

Staff were impressed with the efforts that the young people put into the show - and the audience of parents and friends, as well as children from neighbouring primary schools, appreciated the results.

More than 50 students were involved with the production last month, from actors and musicians to the technical and make-up teams, set and costume designers. Dorothy was played by Lauren Rickards and the Wizard by Marinos Stavro.

Many staff were involved, including Mr Joinson, Mrs Bellamy and Mrs Tushingham, set and props; Mrs Rhodes and Miss Simmonds costumes, Miss Barton, direction and Miss Harvey, choreography. 

Mrs Hurrell, director, and Mr Nicholas, musical director, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff who have been involved in the show, all parents and guardians who have provided their support to our pupils but most of all we would like to thank all the pupils who have worked extremely hard over the last three terms for their amazing efforts, well done!”
