FRAMINGHAM – Framingham High School’s award-winning drama company is staging two productions this month and both at outdoor venues.
Charlotte’s Web will have two performances at Eastleigh Farm in Framingham and Wiley and the Hairy Man will have two performances at the new Fuller Middle School outdoor ampitheatre.
“Outdoor theatre was a huge success with Shrek in the spring. We wanted to continue with that idea but to bring theatre into the community instead of school based,” said Framingham Public Schools Director of Fine and Performing Arts Donna Wresinski.
Framingham High School Drama Company “has always embraced our youngest audience members and this year, after so long without theatre we want to make it accessible to all,” said Wresinski. ” These two plays represent represent a well known children’s piece ( Charlotte’s Web) and a lesser known magical story ( Wiley and the Hairy Man). Both plays deal with the lesson of dealing with fears and how family and friends can walk beside you on a journey.”
Framingham High performing arts director “Chris (Brindley) really wanted to do this in an environment that would support the storytelling,” explained Wresinksi. “Eastleigh Farm was excited to be a partner. We also wanted a south side location and the new Fuller Amphitheater is perfect. It will exciting to be the inaugural performance.”
