Country Day alum Kenny Letts '17, a sophomore and theatre major at Hamilton College, got to live the Broadway dream by serving as lead intern and performance intern for the Broadway Dreams Foundation last summer.
As a lead intern, Kenny acted as a liaison between performance interns and faculty and assisted the head staffers with organization management. He also created and taught educational classes about musical theatre for children aged 8-14. As a performance intern, he auditioned for and performed in weekly showcases.

During Kenny’s time at Country Day, I feel honored to have witnessed how the arts transformed him to pursue his passion for theatre. From the time he was in eighth grade writing original movie scripts, until his senior year performing as the iconic Scarecrow in 'The Wizard of Oz,' his tenacity, energy, and love for the arts has allowed him to find continued success. As a recipient of the Outstanding Actor Award from the North Carolina Theatre Conference High School Play Festival and Blumey Nomination for Best Actor during his senior year, it is no surprise Kenny propelled further with his accomplishments in the pursuit of theatre arts at the collegiate level and beyond.
