Upcoming Peformance - PICNIC, a play by William Inge
Set in a small-town in Kansas on a hot Labor Day in 1953, PICNIC, the Pulitzer Prize- winning drama by William Inge, centers on two families of women who dream of a way to escape the boredom of their stifling existence and domestic routines. When a handsome, young drifter arrives, the primeval force of his presence affects everyone. Each woman responds to his physical appeal in different ways, as memories, desires and repressed emotions are unleashed.

Check it out - JRA's Blog - ANGRY BIRDS ACTIVITY PARK

Check out this video put together by Jack Rouse Associates on the Angry Bird Activity Park Project in Russia that was completed back in 2015. This is a great look at the construction process that goes in to creating exhibits and we were very excited to be the lighting designers on the project!
