Here are the photos I took during the Domino Players' pilgrimage to the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival for Region 2 in Towson, Maryland. You'll see shots of the very impressive Center for the Arts at Towson (we were all a bit green with envy). I also tried to document the Load-in and Load-out for our presentation of A Streetcar Named Desire - a crucial part of the Festival process. We had exactly 4-and-a-half hours to unload scenic elements, lights, equipment, costumes - EVERYTHING - and get the set recreated, the lights hung and focused, the sound levels checked, and the 400 individual props perfectly placed. It's not a continuous record, since I wanted to do my share of lifting and carrying - to be the sort of photojournalist who rescues the baby rather than documenting its demise. What I hope the album conveys is the enormous amount of dedication and skill brought to the enterprise by colleagues who never appeared onstage. What a wonderful, collaborative company! I was particularly happy that so many eager Freshmen got to join a production that originated before they were Albrightians. Oh yeah, while it's not really for me to say, we ROCKED the house!
