International Thespian Society Inducts 45 from Syosset HS

Once again, Syosset High School theater students can take a bow. Forty-five members of the school’s Association for Creative Thespians have been inducted into the International Thespian Society’s honor society for secondary school students.  These fine young performers join the likes of alumni including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Goodman, Tom Hanks and Jane Lynch.

Under the leadership of troupe director Gene Connor, Syosset’s inductees have logged more than 100 hours of time either studying or performing in the theater arts or related disciplines. Many of the students play major roles in the variety of entertaining productions held throughout the school year. While some of this year’s inductees have already graduated, a number of them can be seen performing in upcoming productions this year and next. Many of them are pictured here.
Three of this year’s current members/inductees –Emily Krichmar, Lauren Kueper and Steven Kueper – received the “Honor Thespian” distinction for accumulating more than 600 hours of performing and studying theater.    Congratulations to all!
