Shoutout to GLHS theatre teacher Cindi Macioce for pulling off a wonderful surprise for one of her theatre classes. After a trip to the local movie theater to see West Side Story, Cindi arranged for former student Mike Faist (Riff in the new West Side Story) to stop by, meet the class and answer questions.
Mike is a proud alum of the GLHS theater program and a 2021 inductee into the GLHS Alumni Hall of Fame.
