The Wiz!
Venue: Saint Francis Xavier School
Time: 7pm
Saint Francis Xavier School presents The Wiz! A musical adaptation of 'The Wizard of Oz'

Pupils at Saint Francis Xavier School, Richmond present The Wiz, 10th-12th July at 7pm.

THE WIZ is a soul musical retelling of L Frank Baum’s classic children’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. When Dorothy is swept up in a storm and lands in a strange land called Oz, she is sent on a journey down the yellow brick road to meet the mighty Wiz who might just be able to send her home again. On the way she meets Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion who could all benefit from a trip to see the Wiz too. What follows is a journey of self-discovery for Dorothy and her new friends as they learn they are more capable than they believe.
The school production features a cast of 40 pupils aged between 11-15 and is directed by English and Drama teacher, Claire Smith. The production features a thirteen-piece professional band led by Musical Director and school Head of Music Chris Rodaway, whilst fellow teacher Catherine Knight has taken responsibility for choreography.
THE WIZ was conceived by Sam Bobrick, Charlie Smalls and William F Brown, who originally set the musical in the context of African-American culture. The production opened on Broadway in 1975 with an all-black cast and went on to win seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The production was made into a film by Universal Pictures and Motown Productions, with Diana Ross playing the lead character of Dorothy, and Michael Jackson in the role of the Scarecrow. A live television adaptation of THE WIZ was aired on NBC in 2015.

Tickets are available from School Reception. Tickets: Adults - £8.00, Child (16 and under) - £5.00. Box Office: 01748 823414, communications@sfxschool.org.uk , Saint Francis Xavier School, Darlington Road, Richmond, North Yorkshire, DL10 7DA
