Great News from Theater! This fall, WHS had its production of ‘Into the Woods’ adjudicated by the Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild. As part of this program, WHS was then nominated for two awards:

  • ●  Adam Balbale and Alex Cross were nominated in the category of “Best Specialty Ensemble” for their performances as the Princes.
  • ●  Justin Kirk was nominated in the category of “Best Performance in a Leading Role” for his performance of the Baker.

    Justin, Alex, Adam, and other company members will be attending the awards ceremony Monday night. Justin has been invited to perform in the opening number of the awards ceremony as a “Leading Actor” nominee! Over 50 schools participated in the program, and each nomination category had only 5-6 nominees selected, so we are very proud that they have been recognized for their accomplishments!
