Wilton High School is home to two cavernous bellies of vacant space. The emptiness with which they sit is not due to lack of physical objects occupying the walls within. Those do exist. It is instead due to a longing, an expectancy of grandeur that will fill their interiors for a few nights a week every fall, winter and spring.
Their exteriors are awfully inconspicuous, given away by nothing but plastic placards beside their uniform wooden doors reading the words “Little Theater” and “Clune Auditorium.” Their innards are lined with rows of cushioned chairs, placed in an angular fashion as to ensure optimal sight lines and their walls adorned with peculiar-looking instruments to enhance the rooms’ acoustics. These hallowed halls are home to the theater department at Wilton High School.
