Woodstock High School's Drama program strives to provide quality productions for the entire community. From beginning to end, our students work to bring stories to life on stage in every aspect. 

 

For the 2015-2016 season, we will perform the following shows:

 

The Curious Savage, by John Patrick, on Oct. 15, 16, 17 at 7:30 p.m., is the warm-hearted tale of Mrs. Ethel Savage, a fabulously wealthy and energetically charitable widow. When she begins to pursue her youthful dreams and give away much of the family’s wealth. her three greedy, adult stepchildren commit her to a mental sanitarium, "The Cloisters." Here she meets a variety of quirky and endearing characters - Hannibal, who plays the violin with force and gusto and a total lack of talent; Jeffrey, whose imaginary facial scars have disfigured his mind, not his body; Florence, who is convinced her dead little boy is still alive; Fairy Mae, a remarkably plain girl with romantic fantasies; and Mrs. Paddy, who paints, but has little to say beyond her list of hates. Despite the revelations about these inmates’ past lives, they are charming and use a rather whimsical logic to keep a hurtful world outside. Eventually they all appear more sane than those outside the walls of the institution. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students.

 

Woodstock Drama's Winter Showcase on December 7 at 7:30 p.m. In this showcase of the talent of the Advanced Drama class, students will perform a collection of monologues, short scenes, musical numbers, and group scenes.

All tickets are $5.

The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice.
