WHS Names new Theater Director

CGVCarolyn Gomes Vieira has loved theatre since first being introduced to musicals as a child. She spent many hours watching Grease, Oklahoma, and Annie Get your Gun with her mother. She realized early that she couldn’t sing, but she could write! She entered UMASS Dartmouth where she majored in Drama and Film soaking in everything she could about stagecraft and the dramatic arts. From there she flew across the country to study Playwrighting at the University of Southern California where she attained a Master in Fine Arts in the Dramatic Arts. She also studied producing theatre, directing and dramaturgy. While in school she directed 4 variety shows with Upward Bound, performed in a kid-centric play that she co-wrote with a team and taught budding artists how to break down the play to its essence. She also was part of a group that created a festival of new shows called the Playground where her play Between Friends was performed. Since then she has worked on her plays and is currently in the process of sending works out for possible production. As an English teacher, she realizes that one of her greatest talents is to share her love for theatre with the youth of today as well as help them develop and discover their true talents. Her favorites include Buried Child by Sam Shepard, Grease, Chigago, Rent, and anything by the Greeks. Her goal for the Viking Theater Company is to help them expand their repertoire as well as give them the opportunity to create new and original works. All she asks in return is for them to not to be afraid to “be a fool” because “an actor must learn to be free!”

The previous Director of the Viking Theater Company, Don Bliss, retired at the end of the 2013-2014 school year following 20 years of service to Wareham High School.
