Wayland’s Thespian Society hosted a Coffeehouse in Heaton’s Union on campus in early December that showcased the varied talents of students from every grade at Wayland. The evening saw student musical performances, poetry readings, sketches, stand-up comedians, and even a choreographed yo-yo display. Notable performances included a stand-up comedy performance by sophomore Sy LaRoda that left the audience in hysterics and a reading by Mohammad Nafisi Bahabadi `18 of a short story he authored in creative writing class.
The evening concluded as Aaron Turnquest `18 sang “Dear Theodosia” from the musical Hamilton accompanied by Eric Kane `18 on ukulele. The event was packed, and organizers Fischer Vickers `17 and Andrew Booker `18 hope to have a second Coffeehouse in the spring semester.
