Annual Puppetry Festival

Annual Puppetry Festival

Our second puppet show, “Sir George and the Dragon,” will take place on Saturday, March 2 from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Performed by John McDonough’s Pumpernickel Puppets, “Sir George and the Dragon” tells the story of an adventurous princess who journeys to Mystery Mountain to visit the Great Green Dragon. Along the way you’ll meet Zelda the babysitter, a silly bat, Sir George and his clumsy dog, and of course the lovable dragon. Will Sir George slay the dragon? Not to worry, everything ends happily in this fun show. Presented with large colorful hand puppets and live voices and sound effects. The morning will include a post-performance demonstration period to give the audience some insight into what happens behind the scenes. The show is appropriate for children ages 3 and up. Tickets are $10 each. Buy tickets here: https://payit.nelnet.net/form/TBxSRsrg

WMS Presents is an annual program where interesting people from within our community join us for a unique, one-evening performance. Open to the public as well as the WMS community, tickets range in price from $45 to $100 with all proceeds going to the school.

the Polar Plunge

The Polar Plunge

Every December the WMS community comes together to make a splash for a good cause. With all proceeds going to support tuition assistance and scholarship, the Polar Plunge is a fun and slightly crazy event where students, parents, teachers and, yes, even the Head of School, jump into the frigid waters of Lake Waramaug. Support comes from a range of generous sponsors and the brave individuals who pay to plunge. Come on in, the water’s fine!
