Three accomplished SGWS graduates — Sarah Caley, Jerome Hume, and Alec Soudry — are performing this week in the Archbishop Hoban High School Theater Series performance of ‘The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail.’
Jerome is playing the part of Waldo, Sarah is Ball, and Alec is the voice of the Minister. The play is based on a true event when Henry David Thoreau spent a night in jail for refusing to pay taxes. This incident later provided the basis for Thoreau’s popular essay, “Civil Disobedience.”
The play opened November 4th to a packed house of over 250 people.
You can still see the show, tonight, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m. or Saturday, Nov. 7, at 7:30 p.m. Both performances will be in the Barry Gym. Tickets can be bought online at www.hobantheatre.org or at the door.
A heartfelt congratulations to Alec, Jerome and Sarah. Break a leg!
