We’re off to see The Wiz...

Last year, the Stage Experience production of Footloose at MK Theatre was a booming success.

Now there’s a new experience...

More than 100 youngsters – aged between 10 and 21 years old – were selected from open auditions to take part in the two-week project, culminating in this week’s performances.

Producer Robert Marsden said: “We’re really excited to open The Wiz tomorrow after a creative, joyful and vibrant week and a half of rehearsals.

“The kids have worked so hard to achieve a full scale musical in the space of just under two weeks.

“It’s been an absolute delight to be directing my first stage experience for Milton Keynes theatre creative learning.

“I’ve been so impressed with the talent, dedication and professionalism of the young people involved and cannot wait to see the end result on stage.”

The Wiz is The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in musical form, with a dazzling mixture of rock, gospel and soul to tempt you with.

A live orchestra will bring the sounds, and we can’t not mention the ‘actress’ playing Toto – it’s four-legged star Gladys the pooch!
