• Annual 100th Night Show has ghostly appeal

    The Firsties, with now less than 100 days until graduation, rehearsed for the annual 100th Night Show, Feb. 15. The show’s title, Col. Thayer's Revenge, was set in cadet rooms and Central Area and centered around a new cadet who went through his four-year journey at West Point and becomes somewhat confused about whether to stay until graduation. However, during his journey, the cadet discovers the ghost of Col. Thayer that is set on ruining West Point and, with the help of his friend/love interest, they defeat Col. Thayer.

    In a time-honored tradition, the Class of 2017 produced, directed, wrote and starred in the annual 100th Night Show to celebrate less than 100 days before graduation Feb. 16 and 18. The celebration also included a banquet on the 18th prior to the last performance.

    The play, “Col. Thayer’s Revenge” was written by Class of 2017 Cadets Adam Carroll, Patrick George, Tyler Holderby, Liam Manville and WJ Moretz and directed by Holderby, Adam Carroll and Manville and produced by Linda Erickson.

    The play predominantly takes place in Central Area or in a cadet’s room. The audience was able to discern Col. Thayer’s presence by his disembodied voice or a vague shadow of someone with gray hair and a long overcoat draped over his shoulder and is seen literally whipping the cadets in the first scene.
