May 2021: Theatre Alumni Newsletter
More than likely, most graduates before 1995 had never heard of a pedagogy program, which the VCU theatre department started in 1996. We’re featuring four alumni of the program, with an intro from Professor Emeritus David Leong, former department chair.
– Liz Hopper (professor emeritus), Jerry Williams (B.F.A.’71/A) and VCUarts Theatre
