On Saturday, November 26, the Wellesley High School hosted the Turn Out the Lights Performing Arts Showcase. The event culminated a week-long farewell to the Wellesley High School building and a celebration of over 70 years of educating Wellesley’s students. Former WHS English teacher Jeanie Goddard is the organizer-in-chief of this wonderful week.

The sold-out Performing Arts Showcase featured former and current WHS performers in opera, classical music, folk, rock, country, musical theater, jazz, poetry, film, and stand-up comedy. The Showcase was hosted by Tim Dowling (WHS ’92) and Adam Harrington (WHS ’96) and was produced by Beth Carrillo Thomas (WHS ’80). The Artistic Director was Chris Holownia (WHS ’02). All proceeds from the event went to the Wellesley POPS (Parents of Performing Students) WHS Piano Fund.
