Theatrical volunteers needed to help make 'Splash'

Volunteers are needed to help high school students write, rehearse and perform a theatrical production at MIT as part of "Splash," a two-day (Nov. 19 and 20) program of enrichment classes led by MIT alumni Catherine Havasi (S.B. 2003) and Dan Zaharopol (S.B. 2004). "Splash" is organized by the MIT Educational Studies Program, a volunteer student group that Zaharopol helped to direct while he was at MIT. The high school students in the theater subprogram will be led through classes on writing, acting and technical theater; they will then write a script, rehearse and perform it for an audience of their peers on Sunday at 6 p.m. "Our goal is to get high school students excited about theater," Havasi said. "A concentrated program like this will let them quickly build a sense of community and will give them a sense of accomplishment." Classes will take place on Saturday, but Havasi stresses that help will be needed throughout the weekend. To participate, e-mail Havasi at havasi@alum.mit.edu or Zaharopol at danz@alum.mit.edu.
