The Wizard of Oz has finally started - What a show!!

We all had the most wonderful day, our first show to over 550 people, the weather was freezing outside, it even snowed a little. All the children were excited and a little nervous. We had Win Television film "The Yellow Brick Road' performance this morning and interview Melissa McShane, who plays Dorothy and the local Southern Highland Newspaper photographing. Our show appeared on our local news tonight and it was great! What a buzz - everyone was busy and everyone was smiling and happy.

Congratulations to all the children in the show and all who worked behind the scenes -

We were all so proud of the children, backstage, on stage and throughout the day.

I am so impressed with the way all the children are hanging up all their costumes and looking after all their props in the change rooms. All the Mums and Dads backstage are amazing and deserve a medal as well, keeping them all quiet, happy and dressed in time for the next scene.


  1. Oh Coty - how fantastic! This is why I just love Community Theatre - may it reign forever! This production is a triumph. Well done Superwoman, I stand in awe of your creativity, skill & determination.

  2. Congratulations to you and to those wonderful kids Coty! It looks amazing, fascinating and totally entertaining. Also, the quality of all the costumes and props are mind boggling to me. Wonderful job! Vicki

  3. I saw the performance last night: Wow! My comments on the stars could only be "Superb", and the same applies to your props and costumes -- absolutely fantastic. Thank you so much for adding to the enjoyment for me -- and for all. Your talent is outstanding.

  4. It's just breathtaking, Coty! The costumes are stunning, they are so lucky to have you to create all of that!! We just finished The Secret Garden here at our school in Dallas, Texas, and I know exactly how you feel right now - proud, AND exhausted. It was so worth everything you did though, because it's truly beautiful. Cheers, Andrea

  5. All of your efforts have paid off beauifully! Those costumes are absolutely wonderful! I am so glad you have taken us on this adventure with you. I feel your excitement over the success of the performance, and I am excited just seeing these wonderful pictures. Congratulations! You have done a remarkable job! laurie

  6. Coty, I'm speechless. It is spectacular! You should be so proud. Every one of those smiling faces is encased in stunning attire.

    I would love to be able to be one of the lucky audience.
