    Production Director

    (9th & 10th Grade WPHS Theatre Teacher) It has been a true pleasure to work alongside of all of you to bring this timeless and absolutely relevant story to life. These long hours we spent together will pay off, whether you feel it immediately or later in your life. You’ve demonstrated the importance and necessity of theatre and the arts in schools and society. You deserve all of the praise and respect for not only doing what you love but also for telling a story that needs to be told in this current social and political climate. Seniors, I have nothing but the tip of my hat. You are all so tremendously talented, and that will take you so far beyond the walls of North Star. Congratulations to you all!
