Wellington Pantomime Group wants to recruit cast and crew for its next production, ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’.
It has been written by Andrew Winfield who was responsible for the script of last year’s multiple award-winning production of ‘Scrooge: The Pantomime.’ ‘Scrooge’ scooped six awards at the Somerset Fellowship of Drama presentations in May.
‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ promises to have all the best elements of pantomime – great characters, great jokes, a vaguely familiar – highly colourful – storyline and lots of ‘local connections’.
Adults and children alike are invited to the read-through of the script on Tuesday 7 July at 7.30pm. Auditions will take place on Sunday 12 July at 10.00am. Both events are at the Wellington Arts Centre, 8 Acre Lane, Wellington TA21 8PS.
Panto committee chairman Colin Marshall said, “As well as seeking cast members, the group also welcomes people who wish to be involved in activities such as set-building, organising props and costumes and generally helping with the smooth running of the show. All are welcome to join in the fun in putting together what we hope will be another fantastic pantomime.”
Each year Wellington Pantomime Group donates part of its proceeds to charity. Following the success of ‘Scrooge’ the group was proud to present a cheque for £1100 to ‘Think Amy’.
