Yesterday, the Lampeter-Strasburg High School Thespian Society inducted 12 new members. In a time honored tradition, inductees are given crazy hats to wear.
New members include Ansley Yost, Kyle Johnson (missing from photo), Kenzie Krebs, Gabe Sanderson, Julie Stinson, Joey Long, Joel Lapp, Melissa Long (missing from photo), Josh Chambers (missing from photo), Jessica Heisey, Jarrett Emmerling, James McMichael, Ellie Crumpler, Katrina Herrera, and Luke Broderson.
During a night filled with business leaders, their guests and clients, (and Philadelphia Eagles' Quarterback, Carson Wentz!), a few Lampeter-Strasburg students took to the stage to open the Lancaster Chamber's 146th Annual Dinner.
Straight out of the award winning movie "The Greatest Showman", Third Graders Piper Davidson, Cooper Frizado, and Zack Frizado, Seventh Grader Tanner Emerling, and Seniors Nolan Davidson and Brendan Massar dressed in "steampunk circus" dazzled the crowd with singing and dancing to open and close the event.
Having only two days to pull together a crowd-pleasing opening, they worked with other students active in local theater to entertain over 2600 guests! It truly was a night to remember!
