On Friday night, January 16, over eighty seniors took to the stage at Walt Whitman’s Performing Arts Center to participate in an annual tradition that rivals our most popular events. It’s Senior Follies time, and the students, with a little help from the higher-ups, performed a series of 15 short skits poking fun at school life and their teachers.

Musical numbers as well as humorous and witty scenes that depicted classrooms and hallway life, entertained the sold-out crowd for over 2 hours.  One of the many highlights of the show was a satire of the show ‘Wild N' Out’ where students and administrators rapped.  It was truly a hilarious and memorable moment.  Many thanks to the senior class officers, Mrs. Zamow, and the senior class advisers for organizing this event, as well as the teachers and administrators who could all laugh along!

Special thanks to the Walt Whitman 2015 yearbook staff for providing these exceptional photographs. Also special thanks to our Lamplighter team and Alex Dollin for all the lighting and prop support in the PAC, to SDE Sound Company for a great sound system, and to Rob Krakel and some Whitman alumni who were a tremendous help.

The 2015 Walt Whitman senior class set a high bar; the challenge is on for next year’s seniors.
