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 2013-2014 season, we will perform the following shows:

 

Fortress by Michael Scanlan on Oct. 10, 11, 12 at 7:30 p.m. Billy is nine when he finds out that he’s adopted. Feeling betrayed, Billy retreats into a world of his own, and builds his own Fortress of Solitude, modeling his life after the most famous orphan ever, Superman.

His only ally, friend, and sometime enemy, is Kim, who watches Billy as they both grow up through high school, and who is frustrated by Billy’s determination to need no one but himself. We then hear Kim’s side of their relationship, see her struggle to make contact with Billy, even when Billy feels she, too, has betrayed him, and turns on her. When Billy is finally forced to admit his need, it is a shattering moment, but with Kim’s help, the pieces of his life can be put back together to build something new and strong, based on mutual need and friendship. Tickets are $7 for adults/ $5 for students.

 

We will perform Fortress in its One Act version for competition and for friends and family on Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. One Act Region Competition will be Oct. 26 at Milton High School.

 

Twelve Angry Jurors adapted by Sherman Sergel on Nov. 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 p.m. In the classic play based upon the Emmy award-winning TV movie, a 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. “This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says the foreign-born juror, "that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or innocence of a man; of a man we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing.” But personal it does become, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes!

 

Woodstock’s Got Talent on Jan. 16 at 7:30 p.m. Come see the talented students of Woodstock High School show off in a variety of performances. All tickets are $5.

 

Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine on May 1, 2, 3 at 7:30 p.m. In this Tony award-winning musical which turns several fairy tales on their head, A childless baker and his wife endeavor to lift their family curse by journeying into the woods, where they encounter Rapunzel (and her witchly "mother"), Cinderella, Jack (of Beanstalk fame), Little Red Riding Hood and other classic fairy tale characters, and they all must learn the responsibility that comes with getting what you want.
