Production by Evelyn Wyatt-Draher & Sophie Largent
A collection of intimate stories about people seeking love, connection and redemption one evening under the northern lights in the town of Almost, Maine.
The Westside Drama program was created in 2003 with our first production, Grease. Since then the program has grown to include three shows per year: a fall drama play, a winter student-directed production, and a spring musical. To date, the WSHS Drama program has staged more than 50 shows and counting.
Our program strives to produce high-quality, technically complex, artistically relevant shows, never forgetting the goals of educational theater: to give students opportunities to build self-confidence, develop their teamwork skills, learn responsibility and accountability, and, ultimately, explore the human condition - all while working towards a common goal with their classmates. On stage or backstage, important skills are learned every time you work on a show.
