WVHS Drama Club announces 2022-2023 season


WVHS Drama Club announces 2022-2023 season

September 23, 2022

The Warwick Valley High School Drama Club is thrilled to announce the shows in its 2022-2023 theatrical season!

This fall, the Drama Club brings back its beloved children’s theater series when it presents Goldilocks and the Three Pigs.

In this fractured fairy tale, a frantic Goldilocks runs from a witch and finds herself in the home of the Three Pigs, still recovering from their encounter with the Big Bad Wolf. We will meet some familiar and some new fairy tale characters as they help each other overcome obstacles and dash their way through Storybook Land. Directing the production is Ruth Trovato, a French teacher in the high school, and will have two performances on November 4 and 5, 2022.

In March of 2023, the club will present for the first time the hilarious musical, Xanadu.

This Tony Award-nominated, roller skating, campy musical adventure about following your dreams despite limitations placed on us, follows a lost artist and his Greek muse who inspires love, laughter and the world’s first roller disco in this 1980s glitter explosion. Some of the 80s classic songs found in the show include “I’m Alive,” “Evil Woman,” and, of course, the title song! Based on the cult classic movie of the same title, which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, Xanadu is hilarity on wheels for adults, children and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired. 

Returning to direct the musical for his 24th year is the club’s advisor, Nick DiLeo. Joining him are Ruth Trovato and Donna Nestor as co-producers, Beth Maisonet as choreographer, Noreen Hanson as vocal director, and Rocco Manno and the WVHS set design class as set creators. Xanadu will have three performances on March 17 and 18, 2023. 

Ticket purchase information will be released to the public as each production nears. To contact the Drama Club with questions, please email them at wvhsdramaclub@wvcsd.org.
