In March of every school year at Woodside, the student musical is performed while in May, a lesser known performance that is the Drama production is presented. The musical, which is more publicized and accessible to non-students, often attracts sold-out shows. While the drama play, which gauges a more family-oriented audience, could fill up the tiny room that it’s performed in but in reality is about the size of a classroom in terms of an audience.

“I hear there’s a rumor that the Principal cut the program and that the minor popularity of the Drama production is intentional,” stated senior, Mason Moss who will be participating in the upcoming Drama production.

“There’s a Drama play?””

While the production is mild yet suitable for a student-run play, it still does not compare to the professional sets and orchestration of the spring musical.

“The shows beside the musical don’t compare to the way it’s put together, it’s like the school’s centerpiece for publicity,” stated junior, Karl Nuelkel who plays the drums in the school band.

Several students are not even aware of the production that takes place in TH-2 each May.

“There’s a Drama play? I had no idea,” sarcastically stated senior, Humberto Cruz. Afterward, he stated that many students including seniors that had been with the school for a few years did not pay attention to the production and that more were focused on the musical.
