Walt Whitman’s annual Senior Follies has never been better. On Friday evening, January 17th, it was standing room only as a cast of over 50 Whitman seniors performed to the delight of everyone both on the stage and in the audience. "Follies" is a seriously fun time where the seniors perform skits and roast their favorite teachers, administrators and celebrate all that high school life can be. This year’s skits included Conspiracy Theories, Dad Joke Competition, Schmidt’s Reminds, Faculty Match.Com, Beat Shazam, and more!

Thank you to Ms. Zamow and all the students responsible for all their hard work and efforts. The seniors’ creativity and energy went unmatched and they all deserve a big Congrats!

The Senior Class would like to thank the Senior Class officers for being the Follies coordinators, keepers of all details and scripts, and for everything else that kept the show running. Thank you to Colby Goldsmith, Gretel Huber and Joe Dellaccio for coordinating all the music and sound effects for the show. Thank you to Alex Dollin for providing the show with lighting and special effects. Thank you Sarah Nace and the entire Lamplighter team for all the stage and lighting support in the PAC. Thank you SDE for providing the microphones and sound equipment for the show. Thank you to the custodians for helping set up and for your patience during evening rehearsals. And a special thank you to Mr. Murphy, the Walt Whitman Administrative Team, and all the teachers for being good sports and letting us laugh a little at the place we come to every day!
