Delavan-Darien High School’s International Thespian Society and the members of the recent musical “Once On This Island” helped raise nearly $1,300 for the local Friends of the Children Haitian support group.
A “pass the hat” went around at each of the three musical performances in March. Cast members from the musical, which was set in Haiti, solicited funds from the crowds during intermission. One donor gave $100, said Director Jim Larson.
International Thespian Society members Jailyn Schroeder (treasurer, left), Adam Drefs (president, middle left), and Anya Jeninga (vice president, right) presented the $1,273 check to Friends of the Children member Tom Reichert after school Thursday, April 23.
