FULTON, NY – Quirk’s Players of Fulton’s G. Ray Bodley High School began a new tradition at this year’s annual school musical, Alumni Night.
The local theatre group welcomed back graduates who were involved in the plays and musicals at G. Ray Bodley High School since the school opened.
A large number of alumni were present – some who had the privilege of working with Mr. William Quirk, for whom the group is named.
“We were thrilled that so many of our graduates joined us at this year’s musical,” said Tom Briggs, director of Quirk’s Players and also a Quirk’s Players graduate. “Our graduates helped shape this organization and establish high expectations and standards for our productions. We wouldn’t be here today without their contributions to this program.”
Briggs explained that Quirk’s Players looks forward to a greater turnout from alumni at next year’s school musical for the second annual Alumni Night.
Though a few graduates were camera shy, most returned to the GRB stage for a group photo.
