Lithgow children over the rainbow!

Shiney the Tinman made a visit to Lithgow on Tuesday as part of The Wizard of Show’s workshop programme for Regional Australia. Excited children at two local dance schools showed off their moves to songs like Tinman’s Rap and Emerald City and worked on their voices and expressions through the evening.

For director Brian Laul & programme co-ordinator Christerine Laul, this interaction with Gay Giblett’s La Belle School of Dancing and Gemma Young’s Absolute Dance Academy only confirmed that performing arts teachers in regional cities are doing a great job within the confines of the facilities and opportunities at their disposal. “It strengthens our resolve to provide them exciting learning and performance experiences”, they say. Students from these two studios will join the Oz cast on stage when the show plays at Lithgow’s Union Theatre on July 1st.

The Oz cast will also do a drama workshop open to the general public at the Theatre from 9-11am on the 1st morning. To register call 4626 7777. Fees: $10.

Local maestro Freddie Hill has augmented his Hot Club of Bondi (re-christened The Oz Club of Bondi for the Festival!) with an exciting line up of musos for Jazz Over The Rainbow. This evening of music inspired by Judy Garland & the Oz era is being hosted by Alex Volfneuk at his Square Waffle Restaurant on Friday evening, 9th Aug. We got together with Fred Borg, Chairperson, 24 Hour Fight Against Cancer Macarthur to announce the line up: Freddie Hill (trumpet/flugel),
