Students lacking experience in these areas are also needed to type, sew, and do art work for the productions.
The production the second week of the season is a new one act drama in verse by Timothy S. Mayer, That Day They Read Of It No More. Mayer will direct his play, a masque with music based on a Dante legend. Koelb will also produce this play, which will be presented Sunday, July 14, Monday and Tuesday evenings.
