School Play: Oklahoma Was Outstanding!

April 9, 2014 Posted in: Arts Tags: ,

OklahomaCongratulations to the Fine Arts students, cast, crew, teachers, staff, orchestra, parents, volunteers, student helpers, sponsors and donors for their spectacular production of this year’s play, Oklahoma! It was one of the finest high school productions our school has put on. The performances, dancing, humor, singing, and entire delivery was quite impressive.

The buzz throughout the community after the show on opening night was truly exciting and the cast performed to a sold-out crowd on Saturday evening. Everyone was clearly wowed by the show and student performances.

A very special thank you goes to our director, Rachel Smoker ’04 Cox  and our drama students who did a phenomenal job. We are also very grateful for Laura Groves, Renée Costanzo, Christye Crevier, Iris Fisher, Jeff Carroll, Norm Young, David Schwartz, Eric Wilson, Tom Fagley, Guy Metzger and Olivia Bibbee for their outstanding Kingdom work with this year’s play.

WA Alumna Returns As Drama Teacher!

August 9, 2013 Posted in: Arts Tags: ,

Rachel CoxPlease join us in welcoming Mrs. Rachel Smoker ’04 Cox, back to WA as our new drama teacher. Mrs. Cox has been on the stage and taking performance courses since she was a child. She started off as a member of First Baptist of Fort Lauderdale’s internationally televised Christmas Pageant for 12 years. At WA, she took all Mr. Briggs’ drama classes and participated in three WA productions. Mrs. Cox continued her passion for the arts at Florida State University’s School of Theatre where she performed, directed, and stage-managed many different shows and short films. She was also a member of a popular improve/sketch troupe called Slow Children Playing.

In 2008, Mrs. Cox graduated from FSU with a double major in Theatre and Creative Writing. She then took two years to work and travel abroad. She started in London where she interned with award winning producer, Steven Evans, of Britannia Film & Television, followed by a stint with a British talent agency. In Ireland, she worked as a charity fundraiser for Oxfam and then moved on to Australia where she worked with Tony Bones, a children’s party entertainment company.

When she returned to Florida, Mrs. Cox immediately started working with MUSE Center for Arts as a theatre teacher as well as assistant director and stage manager for many of their productions. She is also the City of Pembroke Pines’ drama teacher where she directs, writes, and produces six short shows annually. She is extremely excited to once again be a part of WA’s prestigious program and expand the curriculum with her knowledge and passion for theatre!

Welcome home Mrs. Cox!
