Lake Country Academy Students Showcase Talents at Theatre for Young Audiences

Two Lake Country Academy students are working hard on the Theater for Young Audience's production of The Wizard of Oz. Kids throughout the county auditioned to be a part of the show and third grader Quinn Z. and seventh grader Andrew G. were selected for roles. Quinn will play a munchkin and an Ozian; and Andrew will be a tree, Winkie; and Ozian.

In addition to a rigorous rehearsal schedule, actors and their families are required to help build and paint sets, sew costumes, and make props; Quinn and Andrew can be found at U.W.-Sheboygan rehearsing nearly every night for a production that is taking a total of three months to put together.

Quinn commented, "Take my advice, come and see this show, it's worth it!"

TYA selected The Wizard of Oz to celebrate their 20th anniversary. This will be their biggest and best production yet! TYA is known for offering field trips to schools so that kids can enjoy their shows. Unfortunately, this production is so large that it is not being offered as a daytime show for area schools. Tickets are $15 each and are available through TYA's website: A total of eight shows will be preformed between January 30 and February 8.
