I’m finally done! I’ve managed to acquire that little piece of paper as proof that I’m equipped to take on the world, make my own way, and pay an ungodly amount of student loans!  The question is…now what?

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.
