In March, 24 girls from 1st Melbourn Guides joined with other members of Melbourn District on a trip to London. They went to see the musical ‘Wicked’ currently showing the Apollo Victoria Theatre.
It’s a fantastic show about the witches from the Wizard of Oz. The story is about two young women who meet each other as sorcery students at Shiz University and follows their adventures in the Land of Oz. The Guides thought that music, singing and special effects were amazing. Although some of them found the story difficult to follow at times.
The group travelled to London by train and across the capital on the tube. Using the ticket barriers, escalator protocol and finally squeezing onto crowded carriages was an exciting experience in itself! The whole day was a great adventure for everyone in the group and an inspiration for the Guides who enjoy the performing arts.
