The cast and crew of the WHS theatre program and its audience have a tradition of joining together to carry out a service project for those in need. This year they are working to help the critically ill children at the Ronald McDonald House. These sick children need soft pillows to rest and recover on. They ask the audience members to please bring new pillows to each performance of The Music Man to donate to the Ronald McDonald House.
