Tuam Youth Theatre takes to the yellow brick road in The Wizard of Oz
By JACQUELINE HOGGE
THERE’S no place like home for Tuam Youth Theatre who will bring the Frank Baum classic, The Wizard of Oz to the stage next week.
A cast of 55 young people have been rehearsing three nights a week since June for the production that sees the talents of Tuam, Kilconly, Milltown, Glenamaddy, Mountbellew and Headford assemble for this heart-warming family musical.
Tuam teenager Jordan McPhillips assumes the role of Dorothy, whose adventures along the Yellow Brick Road are a firm favourite with generations of children.
Joined by Damien Comer from Annaghdown (Scarecrow), Kilconly’s Paul Marsden (Tin Man) and Brad Anderson from Milltown (Lion), the main cast also features a real dog in the role of Toto, with Holly treading the boards over the three nights and one matinee performance.
