SM East’s theatre department is putting out a call for all theatre alumni.

The department is planning a reunion that will coincide with the Saturday matinee of this year’s musical, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

“We’re hoping to get alums from as far back as 1958, the first year SM East existed,” said theatre director Brian Cappello. “The reunion is nothing fancy; just a chance for alums to renew friendships and see people they may not have seen in years.”

Cappello says the department is encouraging “anybody who has ever called him/herself a ‘theatre kid’ to attend. The reunion itself will be after the matinee show, starting at approximately 4:30 p.m on Saturday, Nov. 1.
