Class of 2017: Theater seniors leave with a flair in 18 days


Beau Cameron

Drama department seniors spend their last time on stage.

The drama department may be done with its performances for the year, but that doesn’t mean they’ve left the stage.

The drama department is one of the most senior-heavy student groups in LHS, including Isabella Madrid, Martha Madrid, Eileen Rich, Lincoln Robisch, Andrew Livioco, Sara Bonfils, Garrett Wiehler, Emma Wynkoop, Caitlin Butler, Allison Eckloff, Sarah Maerten, Nick Johnson, Elise Fenstermacher, Cassia Conolly, Katie Knotts, Austin Dye, Makayla Shilling, Maddie Frick, and Lily Johnson.

Elise Fenstermacher isĀ attending Virgina Commonwealth University in the fall to study audio and visual arts. She advises that everyone going to college should evaluate what they want instead of going somewhere for their friends or Greek life.

“What I loved most about the theater department was the life long memories I made with my friends on and off of the stage,” said Eileen Rich. Rich will be attending Towson University to study psychology.

Garrett Wiehler has not yet decided where he will study, but plans to major in the political field. His favorite memory of LHS is the assembly where he and Lincoln Robisch were recognized for their win at Destination Imagination 2016.

Cassia Conolly said, “To seniors: do as much as you can, within reason. It’s your last year with the friends you’ve made, so make it count.” Conolly is attending UMBC with an intended acting B.F.A.

Whether or not they all are able to continue their participation in the theater programs post high school doesn’t change the memories they’ve made with each other. Although Linganore’s theatre department will miss them, the show must go on.
