Design a Programme Cover Competition

Every year we challenge primary school children across the city to design a cover for the programme of our Christmas show, this year The Wizard of Oz. All we ask is that they let their imaginations run wild and be as creative as they can be. The winning entry wont necessarily be by the best drawer but will be bold and eye-catching and have something a little bit special!

This year we had a phenomenal response and received 473 entries from 16 different schools! It was a tough choice but we whittled it down to a shortlist of just six and put it to a vote amongst our theatre staff.

THE WINNER!! The lucky winner was a Mehvish Khalid, aged 10, who is a pupil at Victoria Primary School. Her prize is tickets for her whole class to come and see The Wizard of Oz and we're really looking forward to meeting her and showing her the finished programme with her design! Well done!

Here's the rest of the shortlist - we were really impressed by all the entries and our judging panel really struggled to narrow it down!

Carolyn Baker, age 11, St Convals Primary

Fraser Cowle, age 8, Cardonald primary

Kiara Bradbury, age 9, Victoria Primary

Craig Bell, age 8, Chirnsyde Primary

Darren McCarthy, age 11, Carntyne Primary

All the entries will be displayed in our foyer through the run of The Wizard of Oz. For more information or to book tickets click here.

Hope to see you there! Cx
