The Performing Arts of the Regent’s School, Pattaya have been working incredibly hard to create and perform the upcoming production of A Wizard of Oz. The production is scheduled for the Globe Theatre from the 8-11th March at 7.00pm. The slight alteration to the title indicates a clue towards a different take on this version of the Wizard of Oz that became famous by the iconic Warner Brothers film starring Judy Garland.
The students had a few things to say about this upcoming performance: “Our school has altered the Wizard of Oz and made it our own, most of the main elements are still influence by the original but our slight alterations to the story should bring new dimensions to the production. This play will definitely be a great success by reimagining the classic story, creating a new experience for the audience familiar with the film.” (Lisa Durant who plays Dorothy Gail).
“I strongly believe through teamwork and positive energy that the cast and crew would give the performance that will be remembered for years. With all the hard work put into the production would be paid of, and the feeling of being a part of such a great production will never be forgotten. I wish the cast & crew all the wishes for a great sellout.” (Eddy Rudram as Mayor of Munchkinland).
“We are working hard on the production, and I’m pretty psyched about how the play will turn out in the end. I hope a lot of people come to see it.” Helena as the Tinman
“I am so excited to be a part of this production! A Wizard of Oz is guaranteed to be an exciting and memorable play, which incorporates music, dancing and great humor! With a dedicated, enthusiastic cast ranging from Years 2-12, we, as the actors, are more than ready to put on a show for all to enjoy. I and the rest of the cast passionately believe that this could potentially be one of the best productions ever from The Regent’s. Everyone is encouraged to come and witness this unique version of the classical Wizard of Oz and join in with our adventurous journey to the Emerald City along the Yellow Brick Road!” (Sierra Sanchez as Scarecrow).
Over a 100 students, cast and crew, have been working together to make A Wizard of Oz a success. As well as entertaining the audience the money raised from this production will be donated towards our community partners and Round Square projects, such as Croston House, an orphanage in Lamphun, Camillian Centre in Rayong and the Father Ray Foundation here in Pattaya. Tickets will be sold on the night outside the Globe Theatre on the evenings of the performances at the cost of 200 baht. For reservations on the tickets please call 038 418 777 or mobile: 0847598644.
