Talented WHS Student Displays Creativity
Wetumpka High School student Halle Phelps is a recent transfer student from Colorado. She has long held a passion for fashion, and all five of the Wetumpka High Theatre Guild costumers graduated last year. When Guild students dressed up as characters from Tim Burton films for the recent Tim Burton Day in downtown Wetumpka, Phelps built this ENTIRE Alice in Wonderland dress herself in about a week, which is a LOT of work. We are so excited to have her with the Guild this year!
