There are lots and lots of great photos of the recent USITT Annual Conference & Stage Expo. Gary Fails and the folks at City Theatrical incorporated many, including shots of the flying Easter Bunny, in their April newsletter.

We appreciate their assessment of the event. "USITT 2010 in Kansas City was the 50th anniversary of the organization, and it was a great show. There were good crowds, good seminars, good speakers, and lots of friends and customers to see, as well as thousands of theatre students from all over the world."
