These two choirs have been studying the musical "Into the Woods" during their virtual classes. Wiest portrayed a leading role in the WHS 2006 performance of "Into the Woods" so she was able to talk about the challenges and rewards of that show in particular and the life of an actor in general. Wiest graduated from UW-Whitewater with a degree in Performing Arts and later toured with the Florida Studio Theatre.
