The Late-Night Cabaret! Plus some THREE HOTELS fun!

It's that time of summer again! Everyone's favorite Williamstown tradition, the Late-Night Cabaret, has officially begun! The first of three, which ran from July 7-9, was hosted by Lewis Black and featured members of the ONE SLIGHT HITCH cast, our non-equity company, some alumni, and of course, our incredible apprentices. Don't worry if you missed this one, there are two more coming up on July 21-23 and August 4-6, all at Goodrich Hall at 10:30. Check out some pictures of the fantastic show!

We also got to sit with stage manager Eileen Kelly to watch the amazing transitions in THREE HOTELS from her point of view. As a stage manager, one of Eileen's roles is to cue the crew of THREE HOTELS and make sure the transitions are perfect.
