Greta Gerwig’s High School Drama Teacher Speaks Out

Cheryl Watson was Greta Gerwig’s high-school theater teacher and the current St. Francis Catholic High School performing and visual-arts chair. 

After the Golden Globes - where Lady Bird won an award - Watson sent her former student a congratulatory e-mail. 

The film is nominated for 5 awards at Sunday's Academy Awards.

St. Francis High is also planning a "Lady Bird"-themed soiree. On the Facebook event page, the school encourages attendees to dress in thrift-store attire. Thrift Town, where the film’s protagonist shops with her mother in the film, is offering 50% vintage dresses through Oscar Sunday.

The gym plans to serve popcorn, sliders and ice cream from Gunther’s - another local spot that makes a cameo in the film.
