More than 85 alumni and their guests gathered for the third annual O’Dowd Alumni Night at the Theater reception, held in the CES on Friday, May 4, before attending the Drama Department’s production of Hair. The classes of 1989 and 1990 were particularly well represented.
Several alumni were Drama Department veterans and had participated in earlier productions of Hair, including Carmella Schuermann ’10 who traveled the farthest – from Munich, Germany – to attend the event.
Attendees were encouraged to come dressed in their grooviest outfits and participate in a costume contest. Former Dean Sondra Arnsdorf, social studies teacher Fritz Blume and his wife, Mary, and Lynn Cardin-Anderson ’63 served as judges for the contest. Winners included Schuermann, Dick Moore ’63, Linda Moore, Ashley Rollins ‘07 and Blair Jackson.
Special thanks to Drama Director Dennis Kohles ’69 for providing complimentary tickets for the O’Dowd alums, and well-deserved kudos to all the talented students in the musical.
