Black Box Productions for 2018-2019
A Brief History
Each year Woodgrove Performing Arts chooses one main stage show and instead produces this show in the Black Box. During the 2013-2014 school year, Director David Noland and the students of Woodgrove Performing Arts set out to create a second smaller performance space at Woodgrove High School. This smaller space, dubbed The Black Box Theatre, began its journey shortly thereafter. Woodgrove families began to donate funds and become sponsors of the new space. A $500 donation "buys" a seat for the space and permits the donor to choose someone to honor with a gold nameplate on the arm of this chair. Past donors have included parents, students, community members and community businesses.
During the 2018-20119 school year we will present our first original theatrical work. Written by 2018 graduate Lily Forrester, The Great Grifter, draws inspiration from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. This script is Lily's first and will be presented with two other one-act plays directed by current Woodgrove seniors. We look forward to bringing these three productions to you on February 15th and 16th, 2019.
