The start of spring brings blooming buds and warm weather. In Andover, spring also means the rebirth of great theater from some talented youngsters.
The South Cooperative Theater — a group of third-, fourth- and fifth-graders from South Elementary School — will present 'The Wizard of Oz - Young Performers Edition'' on Friday, March 13, and Saturday, March 14, at 7 p.m.; and Sunday, March 15, at 1 p.m. at West Middle School auditorium.
The annual play from the theater group is a rite of passage into spring. There's no place like Andover, as Dorothy, Toto and the gang travel over the rainbow to discover the magical power of home.
Tickets are $10 and can be bought at the door or before the event at the Andover Bookstore.
