The members of Thespian Troupe 1775 of Albuquerque High School gathered Saturday evening for their annual banquet and new member initiation, and it was a long and proud affair. It is as much about the general feeling of shared accomplishment as it is about the particulars of theater. These kids put on show after show all year long and work their tails off and at the end realize they have accomplished something very special. Tears for the departing seniors, laughs, amazing poise and some whacked-out kid in the light booth who couldn’t resist throwing up a lightning bolt zig-zagging across the curtain at one point in the evening’s festivities.
Who was that in the light booth?
