Over the course of the last couple of weeks, Wayland High School language students took the AAPPL test. If they scored above a certain standard, they were awarded the Massachusetts Seal of Biliteracy. “I chose to take the AAPPL because I know some of my colleges will take the Seal as language credit,” senior Ciaran Murphy said.

News Brief: WHSTE announces cast for spring musical

Pictured above is WHSTE's musical last year, "Beauty and the Beast." This year's musical is "Footloose."

The Wayland High School Theater Ensemble has announced the cast for this year’s spring musical, “Footloose.” There will be performances of the musical on April 29, April 30, May 1 and May 2. “Footloose” is the story of a teenager named Ren McCormack who moves to the small town of Bomont, where the preacher is trying to ban dancing after losing his son in a car crash which he believed was the result of music. It was previously known as a movie and before being adapted into a musical. Auditions took place at the beginning of February.

“We’ll be learning dance steps and lyrics for the songs. We’ve already started memorizing lines, and we’ll definitely be staging and rehearsing scenes as well as doing some character work,” freshman and cast member Melinda Kalanzis said. “It’s important that everyone has a really good grasp of who their character is.”
