Off To See The Wizard In Syosset


More than 60 South Woods Middle School students staged another wonderful theatrical production recently. The school staged the iconic “Wizard of Oz,” directed by Alan Rubinstein. Besides the student cast, South Woods students helped with lighting and stage crew, as well as playing in the pit orchestra. WOZ17
