Troupe #3464 News
Broadway legend Bernadette Peters was honored by the Educational Theatre Foundation (ETF) at the annual star-studded Thespians Go Hollywood Gala held on Monday, November 18, at The Avalon in Hollywood, California. Over 300 people were on hand to help raise more than $180,000 that will support ETF’s national theatre education programs for schools in need.
In addition to the stars participating in the tribute, as is traditional for the Thespians Go Hollywood event, local students, including our very own Annemarie Verkuylen ’20, who are members of the International Thespian Society (ITS), were also tapped to perform. They set the special mood first thing, opening with “A Million Dreams” from The Greatest Showman, got everyone going with “Broadway Baby” from Follies, and sent everyone home humming “Raise You Up/Just Be” from Kinky Boots.
