What the heck is a stage manager? Who arranges those awesome lights at all those on-campus dance shows? What about that set?

If you’ve asked yourself those questions, or if you’ve ever wondered how to get involved in the performing arts without stepping in the spotlight, then this is the event for you! Join Lewis Center Student Advisor Angelica Qin ’23 at the Wallace Theater to learn about the different design and production roles that are crucial to the arts, try your hand at some fun new skills, and find opportunities at student groups or at the Lewis Center! No experience necessary (and we actually mean it, we promise).

Email Angelica Qin ’23 at with any questions, and we hope to see you there!
