WBHS Theatre Arts Program's 2012-2013 Theatre Season Draws to a Close!
We're very excited to close out this year's season with the stunningly powerful and stirring spring musical production of Ragime.

Based on the 1975 novel by E. L.

Many historical figures such as Harry Houdini, Evelyn Nesbit, Booker T. Washington, J. P. Morgan, Henry Ford, Stanford White, Harry Kendall Thaw, Admiral Peary, Matthew Henson, and Emma Goldman are also represented in the stories.
