Due to various reasons, the winter/spring play has been changed to William Shakespeare’s, Twelfth Night.
We are so grateful for the talent, creativity, and bravery that we witnessed during this audition process; you exhibited a level of excellence that made many of our decisions very difficult. If you weren’t cast in this production, we look forward to having you involved in the other performance opportunities we will have available at WLHS this year!

We want to thank everyone who auditioned today; we had a fantastic turnout, and we were very impressed with the talent and professionalism you all brought into the room.
Please take a look at the music and dialogue selections (right column on the chart within the packet on previous post) for the role(s) you will be singing/reading for on Wednesday. Please remember that this list is not definitive: you may be asked to sing/read other roles after we have heard/seen more from you, and you may be considered for roles for which you have not sung or read. Trust the process!

Join the WLHS playwriting class, and a cast of dedicated Thespians, as they present a semi-staged reading of Teenhood: The Tale of Bobby Dink & Sal. Devised over the last few month by members of the playwriting class, Teenhood explores the challenges and prejudice a high school student might face just for being “different.” Come and celebrate the accomplishments of these students! The play is recommended for ages ten and above. Entrance is free. Run time is approximately 40 minutes.
The WLHS Theatre Department presents SHORTS 22 on May 11, 12, & 13. The production will comprise two short plays and a short film, both directed and produced by students. The one-act plays are comical “whodunnits”: Murder in Little Grimley by David Tristram, directed by Ainslie O’Connor; and Any Body for Tea? by C.B. Gilford, directed by Rachel Dumas. The short film, “Is This Brownsville?”, is directed and co-written by Grace Furrow. The quirky film tells the story through the different perspectives of three small town reporters. They are tasked by their hard-nosed editor with getting the scoop on a local Beanie Baby club who have come into possession of a very rare and expensive plush toy. Each performance begins 7pm and tickets are $8. Tickets are general admission and can be purchased at the door or online (click the ticket link above).
Hello everybody! We really appreciate everyone taking the time to come out and audition. You all did phenomenal and we are proud of each and every one of you. This was a hard production to cast. If you are not on the cast list, please continue to audition! Thank you all again, and good night!
