  • Meet ‘The Wiz’

    Walking into the band room at Los Alamos High School, it was immediately clear that the school’s Olions Thespian Club was presenting a unique spring musical. A group of students were rehearsing ballet in the center of the room while a few others raced around wearing clown costumes that displayed amazing combinations of colors and patterns. On the edge of the room, a girl strolled around on purple wooden stilts.

    This odd yet fantastic scene seems very fitting to the musical the high school drama club is presenting, “The Wiz.”
