The Royal School’s drama department were able to perform in a packed Kilmorey theatre with a production of The Wizard of Oz.

After two years of outdoor cabaret filmed performances and Covid-19 related false starts, the hum of excitement filled the theatre as pupils from Year 7 to upper sixth – and a live dog – took to the stage to perform The Wizard of Oz.

The production combined live action and footage which had been pre-recorded in the school’s new television studio, perfectly edited and seamlessly blended into the production.

The show even got a shout out from Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2.

Ed Taylor-Gooby, The Royal School’s head of drama, said: “The talent on display was outstanding and our inclusive approach which still maintains professional standards continues to give our pupils and audiences an outstanding theatrical experience.”
