Off to see The Wizard at Barmera
LOCALS and visitors have been invited to
follow the yellow brick road to Barmera’s
Bonney Theatre during the school holidays
for the Young Riverland Musical Society’s
production of The Wizard of Oz.
Four performances of the YPE (Young
Performers’ Edition) version of the classic
musical will be staged over two days, on
Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23.
Each one-hour show will feature over 60
young Riverland performers, aged between
six and 17.
The cast will perform well-known songs
such as Over the Rainbow, Follow the Yellow
Brick Road and If I Only Had a Brain, while
the visually spectacular show will feature
over 130 costumes and crazy characters,
including apple-throwing trees, cheeky crows,
dancing jitterbugs and flying monkeys.
Director Kiara Hoffmann has no doubts
audiences will enjoy the show.
“I hope they love it as much as I do,” she
“The young cast is very professional and
their talent speaks for itself.”
The Wizard of Oz YPE tells the classic
story of a cyclone transporting farm girl
Dorothy and her dog, Toto, from Kansas to
the colourful Munchkin Land. The duo soon
make new friends – scrawny Scarecrow who
needs a brain, rusty Tin Man who needs a
heart, and Cowardly Lion who needs courage
and seek out The Great Oz to grant wishes
and help them find their way back home.
First-time RMS young performer Lara
Quinn will take to the stage as Dorothy, sup-
ported by experienced YRMS hands Nathan
Werner (Scarecrow), Joshua Vivian (Tin Man)
and Joey Haenen (Lion).
Miss Hoffmann says Natalie Bradford-
Marshall’s performance as the Wicked Witch
“will leave audiences with goosebumps”.
Brittney Kaesler plays Glinda the Good
Witch, while William Gillett is the Wizard.
Choreography is by Keisha Barber and musi-
cal direction is by Belinda Binney.
The show will be performed for one week-
end only: Saturday, April 22, at 1pm and
3.30pm, and Sunday, April 23, at 1pm and
3.30pm at the Bonney Theatre, Barmera.
Tickets are $10 each and available online
www.trybooking.com or at the door 45 min-
utes before each show unless sold out.

New Riverland route
THE Riverland is part of a South Australian
transport route now officially approved for use by
higher-productivity heavy vehicles.
The new route, approved by the Department of
Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI),
debuted last Friday.
A route from the Sturt Highway beginning at
Gawler to the Victorian border was approved to
be used by PBS level 2B vehicles as a result of an
ongoing program of road upgrades.
Further upgrades to the Sturt Highway are
planned under the National Highway Upgrade
Programme, funded by the Australian and State
These upgrades will address constraints for
level 3A (for example B-triples) vehicle access
along the Sturt Highway.
According to DPTI, opening up the Sturt
Highway to PBS Level 2B vehicles was possible
due to an ongoing program of targeted upgrades.
The approved PBS level 2B Restricted Access
Vehicle Network extension commences at the
intersection of the Sturt and Horrocks Highways
near Gawler, travels along the Sturt Highway to
Kingston-On-Murray, then via Kingston Road,
Bookpurnong Terrace, Loxton, Bookpurnong
Road and Stanitzki Road, re-joining Sturt
Highway west of Yamba and on to the Victorian
