About The Class

Age Level



OSHKids is celebrating 20 years as Harrisburg's premiere training program for young artists!

Designed for students of all experience levels, the OSHKids is a fun and challenging class that provides training in acting, auditioning, voice and movement, which culminates in a fully staged musical production of The Wizard of Oz: Youth Edition.

About The Wizard of Oz: Youth Edition

L. Frank Baum’s classic novel comes to life in The Wizard of Oz: Youth Edition. This faithful adaptation by the Royal Shakespeare Company features beloved songs and moments from the 1939 classic film, brought to life on stage. Young Dorothy Gale is swept away by a tornado from her Kansas farm to the magical land of Oz. There, she encounters a host of whimsical characters: good witches, bad witches, animals that talk, scarecrows that walk, and things magical to behold. To find her way home, she must journey along the Yellow Brick Road to see the mysterious and all-powerful Wizard in Emerald City. Along the way, she makes new friends, but must also brave many dangers, including the Wicked Witch of the West, who will stop at nothing to get her hands on Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers. To make it home safely, Dorothy must learn an important lesson: there’s no place like home.

The Wizard of Oz: Youth Edition is a one-hour adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, specially tailored for elementary and middle school-aged actors. The materials have been prepared to help give our young cast and crew an exciting and rewarding experience.
