Thanks to the Center for providing such a lovely backdrop for our final meeting of the UMass summer class, Clean Energy and Sustainable Agriculture co-sponsored by the Stockbridge School of Agriculture.
Dear Sir(s) et al: As both a Playwright & Lyricist I recently located to Holyoke. I am trying to align myself with a theater looking for original works (dramas, musicals that need a single piano, One-Acts, five minute plays) ALL require no more than a 'black-box' style space with little if any overhead. Subject matter runs the gambit from young adults to mature audiences. I welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.
