Fundraiser Supports UW Student Group
November 17, 2009 — The United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) Wyoming Student Chapter has partnered with McAlister's Deli, in Laramie, for one night only, Wednesday, Nov. 18, to create a community fundraiser.
The Associated Students of the Performing Arts' new technical representation, the USITT (Wyoming Student Section) is new this academic year. McAlister's Deli will contribute a percentage of its evening's sales between 5-9 p.m. to the Wyoming Student Chapter.
"The student chapter is of significant value to the students in
developing professional contacts nationally and internationally specific
to their area of study in theatre design and technology," said faculty
sponsor Casey Kearns. The funds will aid students attending the USITT
national conference in March.
"People are curious about how all of the technical elements of a production come together," said Michael Arlen, a senior lighting design major and cabinet member of the organization. "This dinner is a perfect way for them to see us as much more than the shadows backstage and as real people -- we plan to have technicians and designers much more visible this year," Arlen continued.
For more information about the USITT Wyoming Student Chapter and this fundraiser, contact Kearns at (307) 766-5218 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
