The School of Theatre Alumni Group was recognized with a $500 award in late October for its outstanding student interaction programming, for its event called STAGES. This event, established in 2015 and repeated in 2016, is a day-long festival where working theatre professionals travel to University Park for direct connection with students in master classes, workshops, and panels on topics touching every aspect of the business of theatre. In the first year of STAGES (an acronym for School of Theatre Alumni Giving Experience to Students), nearly 150 students participated. The next STAGES event is slated to take place on January 17, 2017. Congratulations to the Theatre APG for representing the A&A Alumni Society in such an amazing way!
