From Grace Herman-Holland ’15:
The weekend of October 3rd-5th , Second Stage will be hosting a whole bunch of workshops in all sorts of things. Check out the schedule below! If you’re planning on being a carpenter or electrician this semester, I very highly recommend those workshops; if you’re looking to stage manage with us at any point, come on by Friday at 3. Or come to everything! We look forward to seeing you. :)
All events will be held in the Patricelli ’92 Theater.
