Courtney Morgan from Craigavon has landed the lead role with Moyraverty Arts and Drama Society in their next production of The Wizard of Oz.
Courtney, who is 15-years-old and attends Lismore Comprehensive, came through a six-week audition process at drama workshops with MADS to land the role of Dorothy Gale made famous by Judy Garland.
Courtney has performed in The Sound of Music, The Little Mermaid, The Jungle Book and The Lion King for MADS.
Moyraverty Arts and Drama Society have had a busy 2013 with five major shows including Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Grease, The Phantom of the Opera and Peter Pan and rehearsals have now started for this latest production which will take place in January.
Courtney will be joined on stage with over 100 MADS members for the production.
Tickets go on sale this week from St Anthony’s Centre and Print Business Supplies, Market Street, Lurgan.
The tickets should prove to be the perfect stocking filler for Christmas.
