NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Stephen F. Austin State University College of the Fine Arts and its Children's Performing Arts Series will present "Wizard of Oz" in two performances on Friday, Jan. 31, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.

Presented by American Family Theater, this classic tale of Dorothy's adventures over the rainbow targets children in kindergarten through sixth grade, according to Diane J. Peterson, SFA Fine Arts Box Office manager and director of the Children's Performing Arts Series.
