excerpt from Mungojerrie & Rumpleteazer by T.S. Elliot

Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer have a wonderful way of working together                                                                And some of the time you would say it was luck                                                                                                          And some of the time you would say it was weather                                                                                                    We go through the house like a hurricane                                                                                                                    And no sober person could take his oath                                                                                                                      Was it Mungojerrie or Rumpelteazer?                                                                                                                            Or could you have sworn that it mightn’t be both?

Then family will say: “Now which was which cat?                                                                                                          It was Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer!”                                                                                                                    And there’s nothing at all to be done about that!

For all students who audition and are accepted into the Summer StudioWorks program, but do NOT receive a bursary, a discounted rate will be offered ($250.00) which will cover the entire program. WST’s StudioWorks program also runs year-round (September thru May) in addition to the summer session. For more information on these programs, please visit
