Sometimes there is a silver lining!
Waynflete’s online platform made it easy for L.A. television and audio book actor Kathe Mazur to take time out from recording in her home studio to speak with Waynflete theatre students. Kathe talked about her own journey from a high school theatre program to the present. She shared insights about constantly reinventing herself as an actor, staying true to herself, and keeping things fun.
Despite our season’s end, a curious group of about ten Waynflete students stayed after school hours. They asked great questions about auditioning, preparing, and how to stay on a TV show for nine years!
Debbie Landry, PhD, founder of iXplore STEM, recently dropped in to Katrina St. John’s virtual biology class. Debbie discussed the structure of viruses like SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).

We had originally planned to exhibit these prints in the Spring Gallery Show. With the temporary closure of the campus, we hope you enjoy the online version!
