  • The incredible WJHS PTO, for so actively supporting WJHS staff and students in all kinds of ways throughout the year. Your generous, trusting, and enthusiastic encouragement of this program and its growth, and your shared belief in the power of theater and performing arts to inspire our students, is at the core of our success.

  • Teachers Jenny Rosene, Amanda Utynek, Eric Senne, and Ethan Kohring for taking time to serve as our esteemed guest critics during our final rehearsals!


  • Melaine Angarone, Paige Lunde and Strother Purdy for stepping up to provide extra pairs of hands to saw, sew, paint, cut and wrangle! 


  • Patrick Sullivan for supporting all of the cast and crew members and helping them sparkle on and off stage.

Your outstanding support of this amazing group of kids has allowed them to spread their wings and soar!


  • Finally, to the 75 Company Members of this production, our most heartfelt thanks. Our rehearsals and crew meetings were not only lively and entertaining, but creative, collaborative and productive. We have so enjoyed watching you grow as leaders and confident individuals.
