“Without a doubt WMS was an incredibly formative experience. As I reflect on my time there, I think of the patience extended to me in my most tumultuous times. WMS also gave me the opportunity to produce my first play and the time and freedom I needed to make it exactly what I wanted it to be. That experience has reverberated throughout my life.” —Parker “Avery” Croft ’05
