In a vibrant display of community spirit and cultural unity, the West Hudson Arts & Theatre Company (WHATCo) took part in the celebrated United Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday, March 10, 2024. This marked a significant moment for WHATCo, not just as participants in the parade but as a beacon of artistic endeavor in the West Hudson community.

Founded with a vision to emerge as a leading arts facility, WHATCo is renowned for its commitment to quality productions that not only entertain but also enrich the community. The organization has settled into its new headquarters at the historic former Holy Cross Grammar School located at 15 So. Frank E. Rodgers Blvd in Harrison, NJ.

This strategic relocation to the Holy Cross Banquet Hall, a space with a storied past and immense potential, represents a pivotal chapter in WHATCo's history. The venue, known for its large auditorium with vaulted ceilings and expansive stage, has become the heart of WHATCo’s operations and performances.

President of WHATCo, Brandi-Leigh Miller, underscored the importance of a stable, long-term home for the organization, emphasizing the role of the Holy Cross Banquet Hall Theatre in enabling WHATCo to continue its mission of providing high-quality theater and arts education opportunities to the West Hudson community. The venue, with its ornate woodwork, plaster moldings, and historical significance as a center for theater productions, aligns perfectly with WHATCo’s goals.

As WHATCo marches forward, its participation in the United Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade is not just a celebration of heritage but a declaration of its role in fostering a vibrant, arts-focused community. The future looks bright for WHATCo, as it continues to make strides in theater and theatrical education, creating a legacy of arts and culture for the West Hudson area.
