Prince Rupert kids put on musical: Wiz of the West

Children from Prince Rupert put on a one-hour musical at the Lester Centre with less than one week of rehearsal.



Children from Prince Rupert put on a full one-hour musical at the Lester Centre for the Performing Arts last Saturday called The Wiz of the West — a wild west adaptation of the Wizard of OZ.

The production was put together by Missoula Children’s Theatre company which travels from community-to-community and helping the kids put on a musical in less than a week. The kids in the Prince Rupert production had only been rehearsing since Tuesday before the curtain lifted on Saturday.
