The Chesapeake Regional Section's annual Stage Expo will be held on September 13 at Towson University in Towson, Maryland. The section will wrap up celebrations of its 30th birthday and kick off festivities leading to the celebration of the National organization's 50th year.
Sessions will be geared toward beginners and intermediates. Professional level workshops will be announced once final schedules are set. The Section is also looking for anyone interested in helping generally, presenting workshops, or taking over the charge of the Dress Black Ball, the newest addition to the Expo. Interested people should contact Chair Kacey Fisher at email@example.com or First Vice-Chair Patrick Wallace at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information will be in the next few issues of Sightlines and on the section website, www.usittchesapeake.org as workshops, vendors, and details are finalized. But this is a good time to mark the event on calendars for the beginning of next academic year.
Chesapeake is proud to announce the return of its bi-monthly newsletter, In the Wings. It will be distributed via e-mail to members and interested parties who belong to the USITT Chesapeake Yahoo Mailing Group. Among other things, this publication has an at-a-glance listing of the activities of the section; in depth articles on activity, members, and programs; reviews of new products; tours of vendors, manufacturers, schools, and theaters in the section; and a place to make the members' voices heard.
Those interested in receiving the newsletter may contact Patrick Wallace at email@example.com or become a member at www.usittchesapeake.org and receive it as a benefit of joining. In the Wings is always looking for people interested in submitting articles or helping to edit. Volunteers can contact the Publications Committee at the same e-mail account.
