“Tuck Everlasting” is a story about a young girl who stumbles upon a family of immortal individuals and teaches them what it means to enjoy life, no matter how long or short it may be. This lesson can be applied and carried out in the lives of every audience member in attendance. Wesleyan Fine Arts premiered their first production of “Tuck Everlasting” on Feb. 5. “Tuck Everlasting” is a story with grandiose meaning and many lessons to be learned from the characters. English Teacher and Assistant Director Cameron Alexander, senior Adam Rogers and junior Constance Harris gave insight as to what it means to not take your life for granted and to live a full and meaningful life as long as you can.

Wesleyan high school students take art to the next level by submitting “eye catching” pieces to art contests. Fine Arts are highly celebrated at Wesleyan, as all students are provided with a variety of visual art elective courses. According to the department, Wesleyan School’s goal for Fine Arts is to “maintain a structured system combined with a set curriculum to prepare the stage for creative talent to flourish. Each student is mentored and shown the importance of patience, dedication and a strong work ethic.”
The Wolves’ fall Fine Arts season is packed full of entertainment on the field, in the classrooms and on the stage. Every year Wesleyan Fine Arts surprises its audience with new shows, artwork, music and more, and this year may be the best one yet.
Director of Fine Arts Meg Foster thinks the uniqueness and variety of the programming this year will be full of crowd pleasers, and one new element she is excited about is the fall high school shows, 10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse and 10 Ways to Survive The End of the World. “The fall play is back in true one-act form. Last year it was a musical, and this year [it] is two one-act plays put together. It’s going to be a comedy,” Foster said. The inspiration behind this intriguing play was to bring both comedy and a seasonal theme to the fall. The play features zombies and the apocalypse, which is very fitting for its show dates of Oct. 24, 25 and 26. There are approximately thirty students involved in the play, with around three to six lead roles per play. Keep Reading
While a majority of the school was relaxing over summer break, the Wesleyan Marching Wolves marched onto campus to start learning their new music and routine.
Their season began in late July when the band attended summer band camp at Oglethorpe University. There, they began the long and arduous task of learning their halftime routine. An average day at band camp consisted of “waking up at 7:15, having visual practice until lunch, sectionals until break/dinner, and then full ensemble rehearsal until 9:00 p.m.,” said sophomore Skylar Williams.
