OL Theatre Company prepares for their spring musical, The Wizard of Oz.

Auditions took place in January, and rehearsals have taken place Monday through Friday since the cast selection in late January.

They plan to work every day during spring break from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m., to perform their best at the first show on April 25.

“The Wizard of Oz is a work in progress, but everyone is putting in so much time and that will certainly show to the audience,” said theatre company member Christina Mylnar.
