Class Gets a Taste of the Performing Arts

Last Thursday The Meeting School's Art and Literature of Theater class visited Plymouth State University's Silver Center for the Arts, the major cultural arts center in central New Hampshire. Meeting School faculty member Burrett McBee, who is also an adjunct professor at Plymouth State, organized the trip. Students spent time exploring Hanaway Theater and extensively touring the performing arts center - in the photo they are holding line sets, the lines that control the many scenic units that come in and out of the fly loft, the space above the stage. A highlight was listening the the costume designer for the upcoming performance of "Little Women" speak about the pattern for a period costume that she was designing and building from scratch. Perhaps some students at The Meeting School could see themselves designing costumes one day!
