Its Wizard Week at West Kings. The Wizard of Oz shows run all every night at 7:30 until the Sunday Matinee and final show at 2:00 PM. In support of the show today is Animal Day as students and staff are encouraged to dress as lions and tigers and bears! Or any other animal. Wouldn’t it be confusing if someone dressed like Animal from the Muppet Show? He’s my favourite Animal.
