The Whitley Annual Residential Theatre Society is proud to present our final production: CRY-BABY Set in the 1950s, Cry-Baby focuses on Allison Vernon-Williams, the most beautiful Square girl in all of Baltimore and her love for the gang leader of the Drapes – Wade ‘Cry-Baby’ Walker. Witty and eccentric, the audience will follow Allison and her struggle between the good-natured, conservative, Squares and the delinquent, rowdy Drapes. From the country club, to prison, Cry-Baby will be a wild ride of laughter, frights, and emotion.
