Theater Day Celebration Proves
Adelphians Are #AdelphiStrong!
BAY RIDGE – “We’re #AdelphiStrong!” That was the mantra on the last day of classes at Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn, June 18th, 2021 as students, faculty and staff came to school dressed in their official “Adelphi Strong!” shirts to show support for Adelphi’s special virtual Spring musical production on Theater Day. The show, which featured a collection of inspirational songs from every era, premiered online the following week through special partnership with Showtix4u.com!
In addition to the multitude of “Adelphi Strong!” shirts on display, Theater Day served as a chance for Adelphians to dress in their favorite theater shirts from past Adelphi productions like “Adelphi’s Got Talent!”, “Adelphi Pop!” and “The Adelphian Masquers’ 5 Year Anniversary Show!” Students and staff enjoyed paying tribute to Adelphi’s Theater Arts Program while promoting school spirit and unity. The littlest Adelphians were especially proud to show off their “Adelphi Strong!” shirts because they all played a special part in this year’s production — performing several numbers with the main cast and conducting adorable backstage interviews!
Head of School Ms. Iphigenia Romanos said she was glad to see so many students embrace this unique Spirit Day concept and have fun celebrating the arts at Adelphi.
“I’m very pleased that so many of our students, faculty and staff supported the upcoming show by wearing their ‘Adelphi Strong!’ shirts on Theater Day,” Ms. Romanos said. “It’s been a year unlike any other, filled with unique challenges and rewarding accomplishments, and hosting this very special Spirit Day on the last day of classes allowed us all to show that together we are #AdelphiStrong!”
