May 13 and 14 at Westmount High School
GARDENVIEW STUDENTS TO PERFORM WIZARD OF OZ
MONTREAL, MAY 11, 2011- On Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14, the students of Gardenview Elementary School in St. Laurent will be presenting the musical The Wizard of Oz at Westmount High School (4350 Ste-Catherine St. West).
The students have spent months working with the renowned musical director Dimitris Ilias and stage director Karen Pearce. This musical production will showcase the acting, dancing and singing abilities of our Kindergarten to Grade 6 students in unison with the heavenly voices of the critically-acclaimed Gardenview Choir. Students have been involved both on stage and behind the scenes and have been learning the ABCs of staging a musical.
Musicals have become a tradition at Gardenview. It has been the Home and School Association’s mission to provide students with a “musical theatre” experience. During the past four years, the same artistic team helped the students present a highly successful production of The Sound of Music and Grease.
The show dates for The Wizard of Oz are Friday, May 13 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 14 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $12.50 each and may be purchased by contacting Gardenview at (514) 744-1401. Tickets will also be available at the door on opening night and at the Saturday matinee. This is a Gardenview Home and School sponsored event.
