Pupils of a March-based dance school brought a classic story to life to raise money for charity.
The Vera Frances School of Dance performed ‘The Wizard of Oz’ on stage at the Neale Wade Academy in aid of Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Principal Vera Frances said: “Eighteen months of hard work produced a full-scale show which entertained March audiences and helped to raise money for the chosen charity.
“Senior pupils brought the well loved characters of Dorothy, Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Man to life with their strong acting and energetic performances.
“The Wicked Witch of the West fought her battle with Glinda the Good and the Wizard did his best to keep up his pretence of being a real magician.

“Dancers of all ages showed their performance skills in a variety of dance styles, from the moment the curtain opened on the lively Kansas line dance it was clearly going to be a fast moving show.”
Principal roles were taken by Bethany Stiff as Dorothy, Catherine Adams as Scarecrow, Emily Adams was Lion and Iain Ward as the Tin Man.
