Wizard of Oz Cinematic Theatre

M&M Theatre Visit Woodcroft

M&M Theatre visited Woodcroft with a COVID Secure adaptation of their Wizard of Oz production. Faced with the issues of performing live theatre while following COVID regulations M&M have transformed their shows into live cinematic experiences!

Each year group enjoyed their own socially distant 1 hour show which was a clever mix of live action, performed by one actor, who was interacting with a pre-recorded show projected onto an enormous cinema screen.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed all of the singing, dancing and crazy antics that we have come to expect from M&M!

Live Streaming

We also managed to set up a live stream YouTube link so that the year groups that are currently self-isolating were able to watch the show from home and take part in live chat with their teachers and classmates. Year 6, who are working towards their Bronze Arts Award with Trinity College, also had a livestream actors workshop with Alex from M&M. After their show Alex stayed on camera, and talked simultaneously to Y5 (in person in the hall) & Y6 (via YouTube Channel chat) to discuss theatre production and acting.
