Silver wings upon their chest - these are men, America's best!  Chuck Gourley sings the"Ballad of the Green Berets."  The stunning visual effect was the product of our director’s creative genius.  Michele Penberthy has directed all of the WOW productions, but a multitude of scene changes and the need to balance levity with poignancy and emotion made this one particularly challenging.  She met it with remarkable cool.  Moreover, she was the power behind developing the concept and instrumental in writing the dynamic book that generated such powerful results.  The entire Wrinkles company owes a huge debt of gratitude to Michele, and to Terry Shaw, the musical director, and to Helen Siegwarth for the choreography.  Their exceptional skills in extracting the best from a company of amateurs cannot be overstated.
