The faces of little Brooks Middle School performing arts students were no doubt shocked yesterday to find out that their upcoming spring musical was cancelled.
But it really wasn’t.
On Wednesday, a sign posted on the office door of BRAVO—the school’s performing arts program—read that this spring’s musical, The Wiz, was cancelled. The reason: lack of funding. But the poster was actually made in jest, according to an email sent out to worried parents and kids from BRAVO director Tina Reynolds. It was mistakenly put outside the office door. The Wiz is in full production, said Reynolds, who apologized for the confusion. The faux poster was also taken down.
Rehearsals for the production have been going on since last week.
Watch the video of "Ease on Down the Road" from the 1978 film version of The Wiz.
