Welcome to the new 2014-2015 season with the WHS Speech and Theatre Boosters!
The Booster organization supports the directors, crew, families, and students involved in Woodbury High School Theatre which includes the Fall Musical, One-Act Play, Spring Play, and Speech Team. We welcome all parents of students involved in these organizations to become a part of our organization.
These days, every school district’s budget is stressed. Your donations along with our fundraising, helps to provide additional fees and costs that the district budget cannot. We raise funds through concessions, advertising, and flower sales, in addition to your donations. We collect a meal fee which covers most of the cost of the cast meals. Funds are used through the year for such things as cast meals, choreography instruction, music mixing, and technical support. For speech we help with additional coaches and snacks for the team at meets.
We are gearing up for the fall musical, Curtains. We are thrilled to have Marcie Berglund directing again. She is known to many of the students as a substitute teacher, and from directing for Woodbury Middle and Woodbury Community Theatre. Our very own, Daryl Timmer, will be the vocal director and assistant director. We will also have the same staff as last year helping with set, costumes, and other aspects of the production. Auditions will be September 4th and 5th, with callbacks on the Sept 8th. First cast meet on the 13th. Plan for some rehearsals to prepare for auditions the first week of school. There will be an audition application, and since we have a new team, they will be asking for a photo this year.
If you have any questions about the boosters or if you have any concerns during the year please feel free to contact our new booster chairs, Bob or Katie Roche, outgoing chair, Sheila Cain, outgoing volunteer coordinator, Winnie Williams or any of the booster board members. Thank you for your support of theatre at Woodbury High School and we are looking forward to a great theatre production year for our students, their families and the school.
