Egypt Comes to Woodside High School!
Get ready to be transported to ancient Egypt. Mark your calendar to attend the WHS Theatre Arts Department production of Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA. It is a contemporary musical take on a grand classic tale of the timeless bond between an enslaved Nubian princess and an Egyptian soldier. As forbidden love blossoms between them, the young lovers are forced to face death or part forever. Together, they set a shining example of true devotion that ultimately transcends the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.
With a pop-rock score that features stirring ballads and rousing choral numbers, Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA is a modern crowd pleaser. It won four Tony Awards in 2000 including Best Musical Score. Under the direction of drama teacher, Barry Woodruff and a cast of over 40 students, it is sure to be a hit.
The show runs March 9, 10 and 11 and the following weekend on March 16 and 17. Tickets go on sale to the general public Feb. 1st. To purchase tickets, go to the WHS Theatre Arts Department’s BRAND NEW WEBSITE at www.whsdramaboosters.com.
