Margaret Hill Visiting Artists collaborate with campus to produce Once a Belle…?
Two of our biggest theatre events, the fall show and the Margaret Hill Visiting Artist, combined in the creation of a Saint Mary’s original play titled Once a Belle...? Striving for Inclusivity. The production was written by the cast along with playwrights and directors Barbara Pitts McAdams and Meyung Kim from the Tectonic Theatre Project in New York City, who worked with a team of story gatherers to write the script from interviews with members of the college community. The show ran in Little Theatre from November 9-12. Sadness 04 by Lydia Zeiner '20 was featured in the advertising and posters, and also featured on the back cover of Courier.
Stephanie Johnson ’19 was on the team of story gatherers and writers for the production, performed in the production, and wrote a song for the show.
