It’s ‘Blowin’ a Gale’ in Liverpool
Like a tornado, the long awaited production of “Blowin’ a Gale” (A scouse parody of The Wizard of Oz) written and directed by Mr Maloney, arrived onto the brand new stage of Holly Lodge Girls’ College, after months of preparation.
It was a special and exciting occasion as it was the first major production to take place in the college’s state of the art, multi-functional space and the whirlwind production hit the ground; having the audience fill capacity on all four performances.
Terry Maloney, drama teacher at Holly Lodge, said: “The cast, made up of students from Year 7 to Year 12 excelled in demonstrating how talented the young people of Liverpool really are, they entertained the audience by becoming stereotypical characters one could find in Liverpool as Dorothy searches for a way to return home.
“Set and costumes were designed by Year 12 and Year 13 Art students which gave the performance an outstanding array of visual colour and added to the whole spectacle of the show.
“The whole production has helped to forge new friendships amongst students and develop confidence amongst many of the younger cast. “The work that everyone put in really helped to create such a fantastic week which everyone will remember.”
