Budding young performers at Cromer Junior School took an audience of staff and fellow pupils on a trip down the Yellow Brick Road, in a musical production of the classic L Frank Baum story, The Wizard of Oz.

Produced by Year 4 teachers Tara Fletcher, Amy Thompson and Rachel Cliffe and starring a 67-strong cast of eight and nine-year-olds, the show featured toe tapping pop hits, as well as a selection of songs written by staff.

It told the tale of Dorothy and her dog Toto, who were whisked off to Oz, where they met the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow, with other characters including a chorus of singing crows and a team of Santa Munchkins.

Ms Thompson said staff had encouraged every Year 4 child to play a role in the production – from actors, dancers and singers, to choir members and narrators.

'They have shown real commitment,' she added. 'Parents have helped with costumes and learning lines and it has been a wonderful collaboration between school and home.'
