Once Upon a Time...


The Chocolate War March 2011

On March 17th and 18th, West Lyon Drama Department will present The Chocolate War. Robert Cormier's brilliant novel is a compelling coming-of-age story about young people in conflict at a New England prep school. The richly drawn characterizations and crackling dialogue keep the intriguing action moving from beginning to end. As dramatized by Joseph Robinette, all the elements of the book are brought vividly to life: the humor, drama, despair and hope ultimately lead to an ending that is as satisfying as it is surprising. The New York Times Book Review called The Chocolate War "masterfully structured and rich in theme. The action is well crafted and suspenseful; complex ideas develop and unfold with clarity." The resulting dramatization remains faithful to the unforgettable, thought-provoking novel which has successfully made the quantum leap from page to stage. (script description)


North Woods Nonsense March 2010

You are invited to attend West Lyon's spring play, North Woods Nonsense by Andrew Ross, March 18th and 19th, 2010 at 7 pm.

The fast action centers round a run-down hotel lobby in Moose Bottom Lake in northern Maine, where handyman Pete has written a newspaper article about Bigfoot kidnapping a local resident. The rumored sighting of Sasquatch provides the perfect excuse for Birch and Pine, assistants to the worst congressman in history, to suggest a trip to the senator. They have spent their careers trying to hide the inept congressman so he won’t speak in public and divulge his ludicrous ideas, such as turning the Grand Canyon into a giant lake! But with reporters hot on the congressman’s trail and lunatic guests pursuing Bigfoot, you can imagine the zany fun that converges at the hotel… especially when Pete decides the guests really should get a chance to see Bigfoot!
