Winter Show Series 2017

[metaslider id=93]
The WYART WINTER SHOW SERIES is a new adventure in the WYART programming. We have noticed that too many of our students do not have a chance to show off, or develop their talents within a production process. 
With the three productions this year: Les Miserables School Edition, Text This and Pericles by William Shakespeare as Performed by Ms. Gower’s 1st Grade Class we have over 26 featured roles for our students to find new challenges, new growing experiences, and new opportunities to hone their talents.
