Hasty Pudding casts six women—including two Harvardwood 101 alumnae!

Breaking news from The Crimson: "Hasty Pudding Theatricals has cast six women to perform in its 2019 show, completing a co-ed shift the group vowed last semester and ending an almost two-century period during which only men could act in Pudding productions."

Among the six are two Harvardwood 101 alumnae, Annabel O’Hagan AB '19 and Laura S. Herman AB '19! The four other women selected are Celia K. Kenney AB '20, Ellen L. Shaheen AB '21, Shirley L. Chen AB '22, and Ashley M. LaLonde AB '20. Congratulations to all!
