Talented students have spent hours rehearsing for their first musical production.

The Cathedral Academy Performing Arts (CAPA) Juniors will star in a performance of Wiz this weekend.

The Wiz is a take on the story of Dorothy, an ordinary girl from Kansas who gets strangely transported to the weird and wonderful Land of Oz during a tornado.

On her quest to return home, she meets larger than life characters, all of whom are searching for missing pieces in their lives.

Together, they learn about the value of friendship and believing in yourself.

CAPA Juniors is a group of gifted and talented year sevens at the academy. They follow an enhanced curriculum, with an extra 15 hours of study in the performing arts every week.

Pauline Trusselle, arts education and community outreach co-ordinator, said: “This is their debut full-length musical production and it has been a pleasure to see their confidence and performance skills blossom throughout the rehearsal period.

“We are delighted to present such a talented group of young people.”

The show will be performed tonight and tomorrow at 7pm, with a matinee at 2.30pm on Saturday.

The students have also performed four shows for more than 200 year five pupils from primary schools across Yorkshire.

The younger pupils were chosen because of their interest in performing arts and took part in a workshop before the performance.

Tickets cost £9 and £5 for concessions.
