STAR Program Students Prep ‘Wizard of Oz’ For End Of Month Showing

in Arts/Education/Events/Local Interest/Schools

Nearly 40 students from all three Coweta high schools are preparing to perform “The Wizard of Oz” at the end of the month.

The Superintendent’s Theatre Arts Resource (STAR) program joins students and directors from different schools in the county to put on one summer production.

Three of the leading roles in the show are being performed by students from three different high schools.

Hannah Hudson, a rising senior at Newnan, will play Glinda. Hudson said she wanted to participate in the program because it would make her a better performer and because she was excited about the show.

“It started with my grandma, she loves ‘The Wizard of Oz’ so much. So I knew it would mean a lot to her and I grew up watching it because of her,” she said.

Hudson added that she plans on studying performance after she graduates high school.

Ethan Clark, a rising senior at East Coweta, will play the Wizard. He said he can’t imagine spending his summer any other way.

“I have done this program for the past three years, and it’s a great experience to help you grow and bond with students from your school and from others,” Clark said.

Sammy Morrison, a recent Northgate graduate, will play Dorothy. She said that all the roles she has played throughout high school have led up to her being able to play Dorothy.

“Dorothy has always been a dream role of mine, and I’ve always wanted to do ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ It’s a classic, it’s so cool,” Morrison said.

The show will take place at the Nixon Centre for the Arts July 25, 26 and 27 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15.
