After months of rehearsal, the Willamette production of Little Women will take the stage for three performances this week.

The early reviews are in: “It will make your heart soar!” “Terrific music, fun stories, and impressive performers.” “Run, don’t walk, to Willamette’s musical.”

The curtains open Thursday for the three-day run of Little Women on the Willamette High School stage.

More than 40 students have spent an incredible number of hours rehearsing for the musical based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel.

The Civil War story of love and family will make you laugh – and maybe cry – and will certainly lift your spirits.

You will be impressed with the performance by Willamette students Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, 7:00 in Powers Auditorium. Doors open at 6:30 with tickets available at the door: $5 students/Bethel staff, and $7 general admission.

Willamette students Jessie Gerlach and Kim Troung had the honor of revealing the LEED plaque in the lobby of the Science/Office building.

This is a first. Willamette High School’s new Science/Office building is the first K-12 public school building in the Willamette Valley to earn official LEED status.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is a rating system devised by the United States Green Building Council, and is used worldwide to evaluate the environmental performance and sustainable designs of buildings.

The LEED plaque was officially unveiled Friday in the office lobby in front of students, staff and some local dignitaries.

Some fun facts about the new Science/Office building include: Continue reading
