WHAT: The University of Illinois Springfield Alumni SAGE Society and Illinois State Historical Society presents “Selecting Great Performances” as part of its annual Lunch and Learn Series.

WHEN: Thursday, April 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

WHERE: Public Affairs Center (PAC) Conference Room C/D, located on the lower level of the PAC on the UIS campus.

DETAILS: Robert Vaughn, director of UIS Sangamon Auditorium, will discuss the process of identifying and selecting shows for the 2,000-seat performing arts venue— especially the back stage and behind-the-scenes technical requirements.

Eric Thibodeaux-Thompson, UIS associate professor and director of theatre, and Dathan Powell, UIS assistant professor and scene design/technical director, will discuss performance selection and scene design for an emerging student theatre program.

The cost for the hot buffet lunch and program is $20/per person. Reservations are requested, as seating is limited. Seating is available in the back for those who do not purchase the luncheon buffet.

This semester’s Lunch & Learn Series is designed to stimulate thinking and build upon the university's tradition of open and intelligent dialogue.
