This week, approximately 100 Clay County children auditioned for the upcoming Community Theatre of Clay County's Young Actor's performance of "Oz!"
Director Elaine Clarke has been involved in the Young Actor's Theater for approximately 17 years.
"We didn't expect that many (Wednesday)," Clarke said. "But it's going to be a big show and we've got the parts."
Clarke said in the past, the Young Actor's performance has taken place in October. However, it was moved to February this year due to scheduling conflicts.
During auditions, the children were arranged in groups according to age and sang "Happy Birthday," and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."
In addition, individuals had the opportunity to perform by themselves if they chose to do so.
Clarke's student director this year is Lydia Stallcop.
The performance of "Oz," will take place Feb. 15-17. Show times are 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 15, and Saturday, Feb. 16, and 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 17.
