They come from far and wide to be in Young EODS and are busy preparing for their next show The Wizard Of Oz.

Katie Wren travels from Hastings having heard from her cousin Gracie about the auditions for the show. It was a wise move for it landed her the lead role of Dorothy. Gracie journeys from Uckfield and is also a member of the enthusiastic cast.

Others are the talented Corey Hennelly in the role of The Scarecrow, and Elli Manville as the Cowardly Lion. Damon Miller has always wanted to play Tin Man since he was little, and now is thrilled to have his wish come true. Hayley Huggett is delighted to have her own bubble as the Good Witch, while Alessia Del-Gaudio is thoroughly enjoying scaring them up as the Wicked Witch.

The Company is keeping the youth theme with musical director Michael Cullen and a majority of musicians in the band being under twenty years of age.
