The Wolves
by Sarah DeLappe

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up.

A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

 

About YOH

“Arts – dance, theatre, fine arts and music – are the cultural character of the community.”

Woodstock Union High School’s Yoh Theatre Players is a program based on the premise that all students, either as participants or spectators, should have an opportunity during a four-year period to experience a variety of performances chosen from a large international body of serious, dramatic literature.

There are normally four productions throughout the school year as well as summer shows.  These shows are always ambitious, challenging, lots of hard work and fun.  Recent shows include PUSH: the Edge, The Wiz, The Three Musketeers, These Shining Lives, Fly by Night and many more.
