The busy boys of St. Patricks BNS Portarlington recently took to the boards and staged their second ever musical production, ‘The Wizard of Oz’.

After months of hard work from their main cast of 19 boys to the chorus of 320 boys they peformed to an enthusiastic audience of 500 May 25 and May 26.

These boys also shared their talents with many of the surrounding National and Secondary schools in the area earlier that week.

It was heart warming to see these young boys enjoy this fantastic opportunity given to them by their school.

They performed to an excellent standard with many of their characters showing great flare and stage presence. Each boy in the school from age 6 to 13 was involved in the production in some shape or form. The wizard definitely worked his magic on these talented young stars!
