Houlton Performs Wizard of OZ

Houlton elementary students performing a scene from the Wizard of Oz; including Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tinman, and Lion

Over 60 students spent the last week of March rehearsing and preparing their production of the Wizard of Oz with the help of Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre.  Students began the week with auditions and over the next five (5) days, learned all their music, lines and dance moves. From start to finish, they had just five (5) days to get the show perfect and it all culminated with two performances on Friday, March 29.  The Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre (Barrett, MN) production was sponsored by the Houlton Parent Association.  Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre provided two actors who worked with the students for the week to produce the show. The professional actors directed the show, guided the backstage crew and performed at the Wicked Witch and Scarecrow. The students had a great experience over the week of rehearsals and performances and the show was enjoyed by all who attended.
