Question of the Week
By Jameson Mandl
Woodbury Central students this week answer the question, “What is the best movie you have ever seen?”
Senior Edgar Rodriguez likes the movie Captain Phillips. He says, “It was well-executed and it really portrayed Captain Phillips’ emotions towards the end. Also it makes people realize what ship crews have to go through.”
Junior Alyssa Gotto prefers the movie Frozen because “It is filled with happiness and love.”
Sophomore Austin Rapp chooses the movie The Sandlot. He says, “I like how they make fun of Smalls and I like when Benny takes on the Beast.”
Freshman Colton Herbold chooses the movie Hot Rod. He says, “It is funny but inspirational because he [Rod] is raising money for his stepdad.”
of Oz School Play
Woodbury Central students will perform “The
Wizard of Oz” as their school musical Nov. 14-16 in the school theater. WC
drama coach, Denise Heiman, is the director.
One of Mrs. Heiman’s goals is to get the
younger students “exposed to theater” so this year she is working with a very
large cast. “The biggest cast we have put on stage including the last time I
did ‘The Wizard of Oz,’” says Mrs. Heiman. The lead roles are played by senior Molly
Grell as Dorothy; junior Ethan Schultzen, Scarecrow; senior Ryan Fouts, Tin Man;
junior Charlie Rhue, Lion; sophomore McKenna Alitz, Miss Gulch; junior Kelsey
Polkinghorn, Glenda the Good Witch; senior Rachel LaPaglia, the Wicked Witch of
the West; junior Caleb Corbin, Oz; sophomore Anthony Gallagher, Uncle Henry;
and senior Kassie Bain, as Auntie Em.
The musical includes high school and middle
school students. “We have over 80 munchkins so it’s going to be a very crowded Munchkinland”
says Mrs. Heiman.
