Zeeland students say goodbye to retiring theater teacher


ZEELAND, Mich. (WOOD) – It’s a surprise sendoff to a key player in the Zeeland Public Schools. The founder of the Zeeland High Players is retiring.

On Saturday, students surprised Robert Torgerson in a big way.

They brought him into the auditorium blindfolded before students hiding backstage came out to honor him with a performance.

There were current students and alumni present to thank Torgerson who was affectionately known as Torg.

He is retiring this year after 40 years in education, 27 years as head of the theater department at Zeeland.
