Aptly named- ‘Saved By The One-Minute Bell,’ the annual Walt Whitman High School Senior Follies 2018 has never been better. ‘Follies’ is a super fun time for everyone where the seniors perform skits and roast their favorite teachers, administrators and celebrate all that high school life can be. The lights dimmed and the packed house settled in for skits that included: One Minute Bell, Soo Seenyaaa, Girls Song, Stage Diving, Match Game, Grady’s Graduation, Mean Tweets, and of course everyone’s new favorite: Diet Coke Tawk … to name just a few. 

Special thanks to the following for their invaluable help: The senior class officers for coordinating this year’s Follies. Katie Latko for coordinating all the sound effects of the show. Alex Dollin for providing the show with lighting and special effects. Marco Chiriboga, Daniel Abbruzzese and the entire Lamplighter team for all the stage and lighting support in the PAC. SDE for providing the microphones and sound equipment for the show. The custodians for putting up with all the mess in the evenings during rehearsals and for moving all the props down to the PAC. The South Huntington Public Library for letting the cast use their stage in the Young Adult room for rehearsals. And of course…Mr. Murphy, the Walt Whitman administrative team, a special guest appearance by Dr. Bennardo, and all the teachers for being good sports and participating in the show.
