AUDITIONS FOR LOCAL STUDENTS FOR "THE WIZARD OF OZ" IN JUNE 2018  
Lake Country Children’s Theater announces auditions for Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre's original musical production of "The Wizard of Oz". This is their nineteenth annual summer production sponsorship and 75 students will be needed. The commitment is one week.

This adaptation of “The Wizard of Oz” features original music and script by Daniel Nordquist and continues their tradition of presenting classic tales as you've never seen them done before. Based on L. Frank Baum’s classic American fairy tale, Prairie Fire’s version is set in contemporary America at the beginning, and it is from there that the tornado takes Dorothy over the rainbow to Oz.
