Two cities swept up in revolution. One last chance for a man to redeem his wasted life and change the world. Based on Charles Dickens' masterpiece, A Tale of Two Cities is a musical that focuses on the love triangle between young beauty Lucie Manette, French aristocrat Charles Darnay and drunken English cynic Sydney Carton - all caught in the clutches of the bloody French Revolution. Appropriate for all ages and audiences, this classic story of love, revolution, and redemption is what the Associated Press called, “the return to the era of big blockbusters such as Les Miserables, Phantom, and Miss Saigon. The show is being directed by Paul J. Kranz, the Music Director is Mrs. Shannon Sheridan, Ms. Julie Powers is the Producer, Mr. David Dorrell and Mr. Michael Powers are the Set designers, Mrs. Claudia Kranz is the Choreographer, and Mr. Kahlil Gunther is the Orchestra Conductor. A cast of approximately sixty sutdents will be performing, supported by a large student crew, a talented team of costume designers, and a live orchestra. Many of the leading and supporting roles in the cast are shared between two students in alternative performances. All performances will be held in the WHS Auditorium.

Though the store has been up and running for many years, Mrs. Lynch and the students design all of the items in conjunction with a local graphic designer, so everything is original! We are very proud to announce that a new store has been built for us, and is now entitled, the Wolverine Den. This will allow us to vastly expand inventory to service our students, staff, and community better...We can customize designs for your Woodstown based team or business by request.
