Wildwood Summer Theatre is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit community musical theatre company founded in 1965 by a group of students from Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, Maryland. These theatrically minded students wanted to extend their high school musical experience into the summer. However, they were unable to find an adult sponsor, so they decided to strike out on their own. That summer, on a shoestring budget, and with little in the way of material supplies or support, they put on a production of Bye, Bye Birdie. The show was a rousing success, and WST was born. For the last 51 years, WST has presented at least one, and occasionally two musical productions, with the entire company aged 14 to 25.
Wildwood is thrilled to announce our Summer 2016 Season!
For the first time since 1991, we will be producing not one, but two shows:
- Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey's Grease (July 2016)
- Maury Yeston's 5-time Tony Award winner NINE (August 2016)
