Willis to Perform Sleeping Beauty May 15, 16 & 17, 2014

The Willis Intermediate School Drama Club is opening the grand curtain to Sleeping Beauty Jr. on May 15th and 16th at 6:30 along with two shows on the May 17th at 2:00 and 5:00.

Pam Beery is the director of the show and she has been the in charge of Willis’ Drama Department  for 31 years. “It’s the classic story of Sleeping Beauty like the one told through the Disney Movie,” Beery said.

Even though performing a musical takes a ton of work the students do get a bonding experiences. “I like how when we make mistakes everyone laughs it off,”  Sophia Hance said. Hance is a 5th grader at Willis who is performing as Princess Aurora in the Briar Rose cast.

Theater is not only about acting and singing though, one of the main reasons a show can be performed is the work done by the student director and crew.” You can still participate, but you don’t have to be on stage, like stage crew,” said the Student Director Nicole Klabus.

Tickets for all shows can be purchased on May 12th and 13th during their open dress rehearsals starting at 3 o’clock or bought before the show in front of the auditorium. The price for tickets are $3.00 for Adult and $2.00 for Students and Seniors.

Run Willis, Run!

On April 26, 5th and 6th graders with their families will be running, walking, and jogging the 5k route at the YMCA in Delaware to help raise money for their school.

The fundraiser is not only a great way to help Willis, but it’s also helps family and friends connect . “We were trying to come up with a fundraiser for the school that also created family involvement” said Heidi Kegley, the principal of Willis Intermediate School. “…something that was going to bring our community and families together for an event which was for a good cause.”

 The 5k will  help the students at Willis by allowing the purchase of iPads and laptops, along will helping Family Promise. “Family Promise is a group that works with families in Delaware that are homeless [by] providing shelter and housing to them as well as job training.” Kegley said.

Willis has held this event for 3 years with the help of Delaware City Schools, the YMCA, and the Delaware City Police Department. The race starts at 8 A.M. on the 26th of April at the YMCA, but if someone can’t attend they can still help by doing a sleep-in. “So you basically pay your money you get your T-shirt but you choose to sleep in and not come to the event.” said Kegley.

The price for the event is $20 per participant and there is as $50 maximum per family.

If anyone would like to sign up for the race information can be found on the Delaware City Schools website or by calling Willis Intermediate Middle School at (740)833-1700.
