Chicago playwright Reina Hardy, originally scheduled to be in Alfred this week for the opening of her play Annie Jump and the Library of Heave  ran a virtual playwriting workshop instead with Alfred Theatre Department students on April 14 and 15.

In order to learn about dramatic structure and collaboration, teams of two worked overnight to create brand new Jukebox Musicals.  The production of Annie Jump has been postponed until the fall semester, with the cast and stage managers continuing online rehearsals twice a week with director Eliza Beckwith, an Alfred University alumna and visiting instructor.
