1 5-year-old Beth Avila, a student at Randall High School, has been performing for years at Amarillo Little Theater.
But her big break came when she was cast as a munchkin in the professional touring show of Oz the Musical.
It's an adaptation of the Wizard of Oz, with a modern twist.
A vila was one of eight kids picked to have a speaking part in the musical.
She was also thrilled to work with Siana DeGarmo, a former American Idol runner-up and the lead of the show.
Avila says after high school she plans to audition for Julliard.
