    “It’s Alive!”

    Greenbrier Valley Theatre

    Woodrow Wilson High School Theatre and Advanced Placement Literature courses attended the viewing of Frankenstein yesterday, Oct. 24.  89 students were in attendance to watch the hour-and-a-half production at the Greenbrier Valley Theatre. Ms. Carson McKinney, an AP Literature teacher at Woodrow Wilson, saw the opportunity as an eye-opening experience for her students who have read the novel for her class. “I wanted them to have the opportunity to visualize the story, to see classics performed live. The show remained true and consistent with the novel, for the most part.”  Students in the course are expected to apply what they learned for their upcoming essay assignment.

    Mrs. Jerri Stack additionally wanted her theatre and English students to be able to see a live theatre performance and participate as audience members. “It was a cultural experience for all. The twenty characters were portrayed by seven actors The character development demonstrated was of a professional level, one that you would not expect to see in our backyard,” exclaims Stack.

    Mrs. Pamela Shrader also took her theatre students to the viewing. “There’s nothing better than live theatre! The best teacher for my students is experiencing in-person shows demonstrating the art.”
