Woodrow has a rich theater tradition beginning in 1929 with the production of Daniel Steele’s, Giants’ Stairs. In 1957, the department produced the first Woodrow Broadway musical, Oklahoma!, and the Woodrow Wilson show choir, Variations, initially beginning in honor of the school’s 50th anniversary, continues to garner awards and accolades to this day.

Retired from teaching in 2003, Governor Rick Perry awarded Marca Lee Bircher the state’s most prestigious Texas Medal of Arts Award.
