Students thrilled to see their Latham Players friends perform

The Latham Players performed their “Love Show” in honor of Valentine’s month before an enthusiastic audience of Latham School students, staff, friends, and family members last Friday night. A wide variety of love songs were chosen, from the Beatles to Broadway to old standards and current pop songs. Artistic Director Dinah Lane said, “I am so pleased with how well the Players are working together as a company this year, while continuing to develop their individual voices and styles of performing. Each of them is constantly working hard to challenge themselves with new music and, in this show, really displayed a variety of genres. As always, they love performing for their Latham School friends and were thrilled with the enthusiastic response of the audience.”

It was a wonderful show, and especially moving to witness the sense of belonging shared by the students and Players. Children’s Program Assistant Residential Manager Patti Hynes-Morris expressed it perfectly: “When the Latham Players come to campus, the students can’t get there fast enough!  They love seeing former friends perform for the group. The Players had everyone singing and dancing in their chairs. We  the Latham Players!”
