Stage Directions • Theatre Buzz • July 13, 2020

With their stages dark except for the ghost lights, Utah Shakespeare Festival has created some online seminars to explore the work they do at the Festival. Their Virtual Seminar Grove offers Production Seminars that are in-depth discussions on technical theater topics. The first one took place on Friday, July 10th with a video tour of its prop warehouse led by Properties Director Ben Hohman, who has been with USF for 27 seasons. Hohman is also a member of the Society of Properties Artisan Managers (S*P*A*M).
