Flying monkeys, munchkins, and accountants OH MY!

This was just a taste of the large cast that made up this year’s Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre’s musical production of “The Wizard of Oz”. Over 75 children were cast to fill the positions of everything from the wicked witch of the west to a skipping pair representing the famous yellow brick road.

The group was trained and lead by Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre staff Ben Griffin and Carlie Johnson. The performance proved to be popular with a nearly full house on the June 28 opening night.
