College Night 2009

We invited college students and their professors to the October 1st performance of Nathan the Wise, just like we did for The Persians last season. Included was a pre-show discussion led by Nathan actor and Resident Company member Peter DeLaurier, and a talk-back with the actors after the show. Prior to the show we invited everyone to hang out in the upper lobby, enjoy refreshments and check out the lobby display. Here are a couple photos!
