The Juniata Elementary School show choir, under the direction of drama club advisers Heidi Soldner and Kathy Otto, will present “Journey to Oz” on at 7 p.m. Nov. 16 in the Juniata Elementary School gymnasium.

The show will include medleys from hit musicals “The Wizard of Oz” and “Wicked,” as well as the hit song, “Ease on Down the Road” from “The Wiz.”

The show choir is comprised of fifth- and sixth-grade students who rehearse before and after school to learn the songs and choreography.

The show choir is an effort to further develop an appreciation for the arts among the Juniata Elementary students.

Tickets are $2 per person and can be purchased at the door on the night of the event.
