Thespian Inductees Honored

at Annual Curtain Call

Walt Whitman’s thespians enjoyed a moment of special tribute recently as they were recognized and inducted into the International Thespian Society. We congratulate these new inductees and their advisors, Mrs. Susan Radin and Ms. Lauren Godbolt and thank them for epitomizing the characteristics of leadership, scholarship, character and service.

The evening, dubbed ‘Curtain Call,’ featured nine performances most of which were written, directed, and choreographed by Whitman’s finest and all performed by our best thespian talent. Thank you to our actors: Hannah Albert, Alex Garden, Maddy Franz, Edward Pena, Kate Pratt, Salma Laraki, Ethan Thody, Gracie DeMarinis, Lily Majewski, Deanna Valentin, Morgan O’Donoghue, Eman Khursand, Ashlee Cox, Daniel Roche, Julia Crapanzano, Mason Greco, Porter Chetty, Joe Maye, Julia Philip, Jaren Smullian.
