We Are Family
Fall Family Weekend
Thanks to all of the parents and other family members who helped to make it a great weekend!! Love those family seminars!! Plus the chance to get re-acquainted with old friends and meet new ones and cheering on the teams. The weekend was memorable for Friday Night Under the Lights Footballâ€Śand we won!!! Other highlights included visits to classes on Friday morning and our Saturday Hoopla. While the parents were traveling or already back to work on Monday, the students and teachers enjoyed a day of relaxation and recuperation (and sunshine!) before settling in for the last few weeks before ďŹ nal exams.

The Hit Musical Comes to Woodstock
Set in a town plagued by a 20-year drought, Urinetown tells the tale of a place where it is a “privilege to pee.” Bobby Strong, played by Julian Goldenberg ’13, assists Ms. Penelope Pennywise, played by Molly Pearson ‘PG, in running Public Amenity Number Nine. After seeing his father carted away for peeing illegally by Ofﬁcer Lockstock, played by Michael Dore ’13, Bobby decides to take matters into his own hands and take over the urinal. Matters are further complicated by Bobby’s newfound love for Hope Cladwell, played by Eliana Goldberg ’13, the daughter of the owner of Urine Good Company and the manager of all the public amenities in town, Caldwell B. Cladwell, played by Yiren Shao ’13. With Lockstock doubling as a narrator with the help of Little Sally, played by Jane McCaffrey ’13, hilarity ensues as the revolution begins and people pee for free. Directed by Laura Michaels, Steven Bertozzi, and Alexandra Keyes, the play will feature the following Hyde School students: post graduate Molly Pearson; seniors Eliana Goldberg, Jane McCaffrey, Julian Goldenberg, Yiren Shao, Michael Dore, and Chris Travis; and juniors James Howard and Zehua Chen. Additionally, the stage crew, led by sophomore Alex Appel and faculty member Alexandra Keyes, continues to surpass past productions through their solid work in creating the set and lighting for the show. Laura Michaels, the head director of the drama production, shared her excitement for the show. “The students of the Drama team should be very proud of their work this winter,” she said. “It has clearly been a team effort from theatrical veterans on down to those who are gracing the stage for the ﬁrst time. We have laughed our way through learning this musical and were excited to share it with the audience!”
