The program will consist of several anecdotal speeches, selected readings of dramatic literature, and songs from musical theater, in addition to the unveiling of a specially commissioned work of art which will be placed in the lobby of the Helen Conner Laird Fine Arts Building to celebrate the myriad of theater productions staged by the Campus Community Players under Greg Rindfleisch.
