Wizard of Oz wrap

It doesn’t feel like it but its’ been a whole month since the Wizard of Oz. It was a great week and the production team have asked me to say a very big thank you to absolutely everyone involved in the show for all your hard work. The feedback from audiences was fantastic so well done everyone. I was hearing that we had broken some sort of record for audience numbers but I will need to get some confirmation on that! Our highest selling performance was the Saturday matinee at 630 seats!!

I can also report that we were able to donate £2000 to the Mary Leishman Foundation. (On a personal note I was really chuffed that Limelight had chosen this very worthwhile charity this year as I was honoured to have shared a stage with this amazing lady for many years at Kelty Musical.)

You will be very pleased to hear that we will be in the Alhambra again for Beauty and the Beast and I know you will be over the moon that we have the same fantastic production team as last year so welcome back:

Bobby Mitchell (Director);
Graeme Sharpe (Assistant Director);
Clare Stewart (Choreographer); and
Ollie Kingsley (Musical Director – get practising your big blue bugs folks!!!)

Keep an eye on the website for details about auditions and rehearsals.

And very big congratulations to Clare McGarr (Wizard of Oz tree and poppy) and Kevin Reed (Wizard of Oz Scarecrow) and for landing the roles of Anna and the King in Rosyth Musical’s production of the King and I.

Oh and a big HI to Hannah from the cast – thanks for becoming a follower of our wee blog!!
