Rebecca Stead, author of Goodbye Stranger, gave a presentation in the WUMS auditorium for the middle school's culminating activity of the all-school read of her book.  There was an author meet and greet in the library before the assembly where students had the opportunity to ask questions about the book, the author's experience as a writer, character development and literary devices the author used.  For the assembly, Rebecca Stead gave a presentation on the other books she has written including the 2009 Newbery Medal winner, When You Reach Me, how she maps out her stories, how she plunges into her writing and how she got the idea to write Goodbye Stranger. Stead opened the discussion up to questions, gave a lot of great advice to young writers, explored friendships and relationships formed in middle school and the hard choices teenagers are faced with.  Her visit was made possible by a Woodstock Union High School Endowment Grant and a partnership between the Rhoda Teagle Library at WUHSMS and the Richmond Middle School Library in Hanover, NH.  Click on the image to view the entire gallery.  Visit http://www.rebeccasteadbooks.com/ to learn more about Rebecca and her work.

 

 The Yoh Theater PlayersWUHSMS Yoh Theater Players 2016-17

Arts – dance, theater, fine arts and music – are the cultural character of the community.

Woodstock Union High School's Yoh Theatre Players is a program based on the premise that all students, either as participants or spectators, should have an opportunity during a four-year period to experience a variety of performances chosen from a large international body of serious, dramatic literature.

There are normally four productions throughout the school year as well as summer shows.  These shows are always ambitious, challenging, lots of hard work and fun.  Recent shows include PUSH: the Edge, The Wiz, The Three Musketeers, These Shining Lives, Fly by Night and many more.

 

YOH THEATER PRESENTS FOR THE 2017-18 SEASON...

 

The Laramie Project, by Moises Kaufman and the Tectonic Theatre Project
October 6, 7 (7pm), 8 (3pm)

In October 1998 a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, a victim of assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking theatrical collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

 

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, music and lyrics/Richard and Robert Sherman, book/Jeremy Sams
December 1, 2 (7pm), 3 (3pm)

Take a fantastic musical adventure with an out-of-this-world car that flies through the air and sails the seas. Based on the beloved 1968 film version of Ian Fleming's children's book, and featuring an unforgettable score by the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one familyfriendly blockbuster that audiences will find "Truly Scrumptious."

 

A Village Fable, by James Still, music by Michael Keck
January 26, 27 (7pm)
Grades 7, 8, 9

An incredible journey of humor, heart and heroes, A Village Fable is a musical fable about three souls who are shunned for being different: Chudu the Goat-Man, Armida the blacksmith's daughter, and Prince Christopher the violin-playing heir to the throne. Their paths not only intersect with each other and the dreaded Six-Fingered Man—they also come face-to-face with—themselves!

 

Bakkhai, by Euripides, a new version by Anne Carson
March 9, 10 (7pm), 11 (3pm)

Pentheus has banned the wild, ritualistic worship of the god Dionysos. A stranger arrives to persuade him to change his mind. Euripides’ electrifying tragedy is a struggle to the death between freedom and restraint, the rational and the irrational, man and god.

 

Life Off Earth, student created drama
April 27, 28 (7pm), 29 (3pm)

When Earth finally picks up signs of extraterrestrial life, humans discover that their planet has been missing out on millennia of an intergalactic council between several other worlds full of sentient life.  Earth makes contact, and what ensues is a struggle for humans to understand and accept the ways of life of completely alien culture (created by students for this show) and become a part of the peaceful intergalactic system.

9th Grade environmental science students presented their results from the Twin States Mercury Project.  The project is now in its seventh year and is a collaboration between WUHS, Stevens High School (Claremont, NH), Dartmouth College, MBR National Historic Park and several more organizations. 

Students are involved in a long-range project where they collaborate with graduate students and scientists to study and monitor mercury levels within MBRNP.  Students also participate in a field experience, search for dragonfly larvae and send samples to a Dartmouth lab for analysis.  Last Wednesday evening's event is the culmination of their work.  The audience listened to a keynote presentation by Steve Faccio of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies by and then circulate through the poster presentations from all the student groups. Big kudos to Jen Stainton and of course to all our student scientists!  You can learn more about the project and event here.  Click on the image to view the entire galley.

The WUHSMS Mountain Biking Club met for its inaugural ride at the Woodstock Inn Nordic Center.  The group rode "fatbikes" on the groomed, snow-covered Nordic trails of Mt. Peg.  The group will continue to meet every Thursday at 3:00 pm throughout the winter months and will then transition onto mountain bikes in the spring and summer.  There is a small fee for a trail pass and bike rental.  For more information, contact Todd Uva  Click on the image to view the entire gallery.
