  • Woodberry Forest Players to Stage Shakespeare

    Woodberry Forest School will present Romeo and Juliet on October 30 - November 1, 2014. The cast of thirty, made up of both students and adults in the Woodberry community and beyond, has been selected, and rehearsals have begun.

    Romeo and Juliet was staged at Woodberry Forest School nineteen years ago. "My Romeo from the first production, Raphael Sydnor ’97, currently a faculty member, is now playing a father of one of the lovers," says director Brent Cirves. "His wife, Sarah Sydnor, who is now our choreographer, first spied her Romeo from the audience, and now they are parents in real life." He also notes that the adult roles will be played by adults, and the teen roles will be played by teenagers, a rare occurence even in professional theater.

  • Third Formers Test Selves on Ropes Course

    For a few dozen third formers, September 14, 2014, meant a trek to the Woodberry Forest School's ropes course facility. The boys were grouped into teams and rotated among three stations. Team challenges helped them learn communication skills as they solved problems like getting their entire group across at tight wire or over a wall. They also took on individual challenges as they scaled the Carolina Climbing Wall and the Alpine Tower.

    Woodberry's Ropes Course Instructors, who were selected and trained last spring, led the new boys in activities and made sure everyone was safe. Faculty on hand to support them were Tricia Tallman, a member of the outdoor education staff, and Nolan LaVoie, Woodberry's director of outdoor education and leadership development.
