in Fine Arts by

The Wolf Players traded their green and gold for black in their production of “The Addams Family” on Feb. 6-8.

Through countless hours of rehearsal, the cast has the opportunity to really get to know each other and grow close. “I’d say that the people in the theatre department made me want to do the show. It’s such a close-knit group of people that care a lot about each other, that I really consider my family,” said senior Andrew Pridgen.

Checkmate to the Fall Musical: CHESS

in Features/Fine Arts by

At Wesleyan School, the Fall Musical was “CHESS” a comedic/dramatic musical that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the show. The show includes a love story, a scandal and much more.

The musical has been referred to as a metaphor for the Cold War, with the insinuation being made that the Cold War is itself a manipulative game. Released and staged at the height of the strong anti-communist agenda that came to be known as the Reagan Doctrine. Chess addressed and satirized the hostility of the international political atmosphere of the 1980s. The plot line of CHESS was about a woman named Florence Vassy, who is a second to the US Chess Champion, Freddie Trumper. Florence has a really rocky past with her mother dying, her father presumed dead, and she is basically alone with herself. Another man named Anatoly Sergievsky, the Russian Chess Champion, goes against Freddie Trumper in the Chess Championship, but also falls in love with Florence Vassy, which causes trouble because he has a wife.
