The Wizard of Oz: Youth Edition Auditions

Thank you to everyone who took the time to come out and audition for The Wizard of Oz.  There were SO MANY talented young people that unfortunately, we didn’t have room on stage for everyone.  If you didn’t make it this time, PLEASE come back and try again or sign-up for a Footlights class.  We are doing the performance session starting in January.  Registration is open now.  

Also, we are looking for a backstage crew of make-up artists, dressers, an assistant stage manager, and an assistant to the director.  Please reach out to Miss Emily at egriffin@mhtplay.org before Jan. 1 if you are interested in being a part of this production behind the scenes.
