Starpoint High School will present "The Wizard of Oz" this month.

Show times are 7 p.m. Thursday, March 10, and Friday, March 11, and 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, March 12. Seating is general admission and doors open 30 minutes prior to show time.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and $4 for students and children. Presale tickets are available at the high school office.

The Starpoint PTA will offer "Dinner and a Show" on Thursday night. A family of four receives a spaghetti dinner and show tickets for only $36, an individual adult is $11, and individual students or senior citizens are $8. The spaghetti dinner runs from 4:30 to 7 p.m. This package is available only at the door (first come, first served).

This is producer/director Jason Gielow's third musical at Starpoint.

It is the most elaborate musical that Starpoint has ever produced and it includes more than 30 lighting and staging special effects. This is Dennis Gielow's second musical as set designer at Starpoint. Now a retired engineer and blueprint designer, Gielow began building sets at Niagara-Wheatfield in 1994 when his son, Jason, was a student-actor there.

Senior Haley Keeley plays Dorothy, and seniors Ben Domagala and Glenn Hillman play the Tin Woodsman and the Cowardly Lion respectively. More than 60 "mini-munchkins" from grades K-5 will join the cast.
