    Woodrow Wilson High School’s Theatre Performance Course is preparing for its upcoming production of, ‘Tarzan.’ Known for bringing the school great prestige both students and staff are working hard to ensure another great performance. Recently the group has started crafting costumes and staying for after-school practices. Mrs. Jerri Stack, one of two directors, explains that while costumes and sets are traditionally rented all props, scenes, and outfits have been crafted by the hands of members of the community and school. Some of these extraordinary people include Mrs. Mary-Jo Snow, Mr. Steve Stack, and Ms. Hampton. All scenery presented in the play will be created by Academy Careers of Technology students, led by Mr. Shane Treadway and Mr. Daniel Harper.

    In addition, to a total of six public viewings, the group will also present four different shows for local schools across the area. Enthusiastically, Stack reports that the number of schools interested in bringing students has reached a new time high. Even explaining that a waiting list has been created. Unfortunately, Woodrow Wilson is unable to attend this term, due to an increasing demand. However, a discounted price will be available to students who attend the weekend shows.

    This year tickets will be solely sold online for the first time: 15 dollars for adults and 10 for students. All proceeds will go towards the next play presented by the group. Showings will include February 23, February 24, March 1, and March 2 at seven o’clock. Sunday matinees will also be available on February 28, and March 3 at two o’clock.

    Remember the best way to support our school’s theatre program is to attend showings as ticket sales are the main source of funding. For more information, please follow the official theatre’s Instagram page, “wwhs_theatre.”
