Then came the sets, all to be built and created in our Wizard workshop, everything was again on a large scale and designed exclusively for Clubbe Hall. Tall and wide and easy to glide. A farm yard, a house on one side and bedroom on the other, eight Emerald doors and a salon behind. A corn field, an apple field and lions forest, a witches castle and scary forest and my very favourite a beautiful Munchkin City to match Glinda the good witch. …. Then we had to paint them. Without the many wonderful hands that reached out to help none of this could have happened. I am so glad to have been involved with this show, it has been one of the largest and most ambitious SHYAC productions ever.
I thank everyone who has helped me create this show, I could not have produced this without them, from all the talented sewers, the welders, the painters and cabinetmakers. Who all started at the beginning with “I don’t think I can do that” to now, who are brilliant and confident costume makers that can make anything. I have so enjoyed working them and with the all children in the show and I do hope you enjoy seeing them in their many characters, I know I have. To see them all dancing, singing and acting on stage as they magically bring all these costumes to life. It is truly amazing….
