This year’s performance of The Wizard of OZ is under the direction of Sandy Couch Hanson, a 30-year Texas Theatre and Palestine Community Theatre veteran and technical direction of Jared Cook, who has been performing since early childhood and in more recent years has been directing performances at the Texas Theatre.
