Bayville Intermediate School student-thespians performed “The Wizard of Oz Jr.” to the delight and applause of entranced Bayville Intermediate School students on April 13, and then for parents later in the evening. The student-performers attend Mainstages, an after-school program directed by Matt Dorter, Katherine Herbert, JoLisa Jones and Bailey Reynolds. Program manager Courtney Cook Naftz said that every student who attended the Mainstages camp was given a part, but there were auditions for the main characters.

The “The Wizard of Oz Jr. was a one-hour adaptation of the original “The Wizard of Oz,” specially tailored for elementary school students. The original characters Dorothy, the scarecrow, tinman, lion and the wizard were all expertly played and the students couldn’t help but to follow along with the beloved songs such as “We’re Off to See the Wizard,” “Follow the Yellow Brick Road“ and “Over the Rainbow.”
