The Birchwood 4-5 Drama Club presented two memorable performances of the
classic "The Wizard of Oz" on Thursday, April 21.
In a school-wide presentation in the morning, students watched attentively as Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion navigated the yellow brick road to Oz, encountering munchkins, flying monkeys, the Wizard and witches - good and wicked - along the way. The Drama Club returned in the evening for an encore performance for their parents.
Congratulations to all of the students, directors Lisa Luyckx and Jackie Albanese, and pianist Holly Johnston.
"Performing in a play provides the students with so many important learning experiences, from learning lines to working as part of a team," Mrs. Luyckx said. "But most of all, it makes memories. It's something the kids will never forget!"
