Chippenham Hi-lights cast taking on a magical tale

First published in News

Youngsters will be following the Yellow Brick Road at a forthcoming production of The Wizard of Oz.

The cast of youngsters aged from six to 17 from Chippenham Hi-lights have been rehearsing for eight months with producer Verina Vanzillotti, who has been with the group for 41 years.

She said: “Usually we have a number of adults in the cast but this year the only grown-up is Deborah Avery as the wizard.

“It is a very young cast but they are all very enthusiastic and I am confident they are going to do really well. The shows teach them an awful lot, such as confidence and how to work in a team.”

Tickets are on sale for the performance at the Neeld Hall, Chippenham, from January 26 to February 2.

Call (01249) 448054 to book tickets at £8.50 for adults and £5.50 for children.
