TALENTED young thespians production of The Wiz is proving to be simply magical.

Rivington and Blackrod High School’s production, adapted from the popular children’s story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a sell out.

It features a cast of 36 pupils, and a seven strong-band, together with young people and staff supporting backstage.

Tony Purcell, headteacher at Rivington and Blackrod High School said: “The range and depth of talent that we have in school is amazing, and each year our school production gives young people the opportunity to really demonstrate their talent.

“The Wiz is a must see show, it is great to see and experience such enthusiasm for the production.

“Thank you to all staff, and students who work so hard to make our school production such a fantastic, continued success.”
