STUDIO32 are preparing to thrill audiences with their latest musical theatre venture – it’s The Wiz, a modern take on that classic show The Wizard of Oz. The show features all those well-known characters – Dorothy, Scarecrow, Lion, Tin Man, and of course the wizard – but with some fabulous new soul, blues and gospel songs.
After Dorothy is whisked away to the land of Oz by a tornado she sets off to find The Wiz, and ends up in a cornfield where she meets the Scarecrow. The Scarecrow introduces himself in a wonderful blues number “I Was Born On The Day Before Yesterday”. Scarecrow agrees to accompany Dorothy on her journey to see if he can get some brains, and we are treated to the big company number “Ease On Down The Road”.
The role of Scarecrow is being played by Suzy Bradley (pictured). Suzy joined STUDIO32 last year in their summer show Mack and Mabel, then went on to play Judy Haynes in their sell-out winter production of White Christmas. The Scarecrow is a demanding role, and Suzy is rarely off of the stage, but she is thoroughly enjoying the challenge of this unique show.
STUDIO32 are proud and delighted to be supporting local charities once again with this production, most notably the San Fulgencio Alzheimer’s Society. The company have raised almost 30,000 euros for charity in under 5 years, and look forward to giving lots more money with donations from this show.
