SALOS look for Munchkins at Wizard of Oz workshop

Swindon’s Premier Musical Theatre Company, SALOS, invite children aged seven and over to join them in their musical theatre workshop.


In October 2016, SALOS will present the family favourite musical, The Wizard of Oz, at the Wyvern and are holding a theatrical workshop for children who would want to take part. The workshop will include coaching from professionals in singing, dancing, and acting and takes place on Monday, 2 May from 10am-1pm at Churchfields Academy.

From the workshop, SALOS are looking to cast 2 groups of children who will perform in alternate performances throughout October.

The workshop is open to all children, regardless of whether or not they wish to be considered for selection for the show. If some children just wish to experience the workshop without being considered for casting they are very welcome to do so.

The company are known for their annual performances at the Wyvern, including previous productions of Annie, Oliver!, and Beauty and the Beast, which draw a massive crowd each night. Their first performance was The Arcadians in 1952 and shows have only gotten bigger and better from there.

The group rehearse on Monday and Tuesday evenings and the children will be required from 6.45-8.30pm and there will be some additional Sunday rehearsals.

To claim your child’s place at the workshop, email [email protected] for an application form by Saturday, 23 April or call SALOS on 01793 343298 to arrange for a form to be posted to you.
