• Middle school students get ready for performance in 'The Wizard of Oz'

    wooMore than 70 Bellefonte Area Middle School students are preparing for a production of "The Wizard of Oz." The musical will be held 7 p.m. Jan. 5-6 and 2 p.m. Jan. 7 in the Bellefonte Area Middle School auditorium.

    BAMS drama adviser Jessica Brown said the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students have been preparing for the show since the beginning of the school year, and include some students who never before performed on stage.

    “These students are doing a phenomenal job with this production and it is sure to be one that you won't want to miss,” Brown said.

    General admission tickets are available at the door: $5 for adults and $3 for kids. Tickets can also be purchased using this link: Tickets
