2019-2020 musical production of The Wizard of Oz.
Performances run January 23, 24, 25, and 27 with a 7:00 p.m. performance each night. All

Scarecrow, respectively.
They have planned a variety of special events for the shows. On January 23, there will be a “Find
Your Toto” adoption event before the show, after the show, and during intermission. During

own special furry friend! During the Saturday Show, the Fine Arts departments will recognize
and celebrate the seniors in the production with a special ceremony before the show.
