“It has been a great learning opportunity to work with a real pool of water in a live theatre production, figuring out the logistics, and negotiating the physical requirements that such an endeavor requires,” says director Amy Ressler. Of the students’ experience, Ressler states that “the challenge of portraying the ‘larger-than-life’ qualities of these mythic characters has been a terrific and unique learning experience for our growing theatre arts program.  The interest and dedication of the students has been exciting and rejuvenating!”
