Spotlight on Oz at Summer School

Young performers showcased their talents on their quest to find the wonderful Wizard of Oz as part of a creative Summer School.

Dozens of youngsters gave up a week of their summer break to take part in the Wizard of Oz Summer School.

They perfected their vocal, acting and dancing talents during the week by recreating scenes from the classic musical, whilst arty students also got the chance to showcase their creative talents by making colourful props for the performances.

The Summer School was attended by students from Years 7-9, as well as a number of  students who are due to start at Highfields in September.


Ms S Bishop, Head of Performance, said: “Our Summer School is usually focused on Shakespeare, however we decided this year to have a Wizard of Oz theme as we are due to stage the musical later in the year.

“The students worked very hard during an intensive week of rehearsals and did a great job of bringing a number of scenes from the much-loved musical to life.

“We are now looking forward to getting started with rehearsals for the musical, which is open to all students from Years 7-9 and will be performed in November.”
