The Stars Came Out

For members of the Hanover Central Thespian Society, 2017 was a memorable and ambitious year.  The talented students who typically present two selections each year, took on the daunting task of performing not only the expected show in November, “The Nitwits,” and the spring musical, “High School Musical 2,” but a number of student written and directed Productions as well, including; “The 9 Worst Breakups of All Times,” “Good Cop Bad Cop,” and “A One Woman Show.”

At the end of each year, many current and past members of the Thespian Society gather to celebrate the year’s accomplishments and award those whose efforts stood out.  It’s a night of bittersweet celebration for seniors who gather with their stage partners for the final time and a night of anticipation for those who look forward to the 2017-2018 season and more moments to shine.
