The Show WILL Go On: See How They Run Performances set for Restore Church

March 07, 2019
By Susan Trower

WSA Presents: See How They Run at William D. Harvey Theatre at Olympic College, March 14, 15, and 16West Sound Academy's spring drama production See How They Run will be performed on March 14, 15, and 16 at Restore Church,  20081 Viking Ave NW, in Poulsbo , with curtain at 7 p.m.  The location for performances had originally been set for the William D. Harvey Theatre on the Olympic College Bremerton campus.  When the college facility became unavailable for the three dates in March, Director Gretchen Nordleaf-Nelson and WSA parents and staff reached out to other organizations in the Kitsap community to secure another venue.  Restore Church in Poulsbo came through with an offer to share its gathering space for dress rehearsals and performances.

Jim Walter, Lead Pastor at Restore Church, is happy to help out the WSA actors.  ""A reason we chose to lease this space was to demonstrate love for people, to support the rhythms of our neighborhoods and  to bring tangible benefit to our community. One of the best ways to do all that is to work with established local groups. Because of this, we are very glad to host the West Sound Academy Thespian troupe."

WSA Theatre Company Presents: See How They Run

February 27, 2019
By Jonnie Love and Caleb Phelan

WSA Presents: See How They Run at Restore Church in Poulsbo, March 14, 15, and 16The classic 1940’s farce See How They Run, by Philip King, will be performed by the West Sound Academy Theatre Company as their spring drama production at Restore Church, 20081 Viking Ave NW, in Poulsbo on March 14, 15 and 16, 2019.

One night in the vicarage of the quaint village of Merton-Cum-Middlewick strange things are afoot. An escaped Russian spy, a saucy maid, a surprise visit from an old friend of the vicar’s American actress wife, a visiting bishop, and an on-duty military sergeant make for a wild evening of confused identities and capering through the garden.

Update, 3/7/2019: All performances will be at Restore Church, 20081 Viking Ave NW, Poulsbo.  Originally William D. Harvey Theater at Olympic College in Bremerton was listed as the location.

By Susan Trower

WS1 - l to r, Max Metters, Max Morningstar, Aidan Phelan, and Emily BradfordWest Sound Academy's Knowledge Bowl team competed in the third and final regional competition of the season at Fort Worden on February 7, 2019.  WSA's top squad, WS1 (aka "Manifest Westiny") had a strong showing, with 97 points overall, and first place in Division 1B, thus earning a spot at the Washington State Tournament XXXVII on March 23 at West Valley High School in Yakima.  Congratulations, and good luck, to our State-bound team: Max Morningstar, '19 (captain), Emily Bradford, '20, Max Metters, '20, and Aidan Phelan, '20.  Also joining the State squad will be two members of WS2:  Emma Longworth-Slone, '21 and Nic Cachules, '21.

West Sound brought 18 students in four squads to the competition, and all of them competed for five rounds - 250 really hard questions!  WS1, WS2 and WS4 were the three highest scoring teams in Division 1B, and WS2 came in 8th overall.  WS3, the 9th grade squad, scored 5th in 1B. And the practices will continue as the whole team works to help prepare WS1 for the tough competition that they will face at State in Yakima next month.

Congratulations to our entire team!
