In May SDC Director of Contract Affairs Mauro Melleno and Deputy Director of Contract Affairs Randy Anderson are heading to Los Angeles to take part in the inaugural LA Stage Day, meet with theatres and producers, and participate in Directors Lab West.
LA Stage Day is a day-long event for the greater Los Angeles performing arts community produced by the LA Stage Alliance. This event will take place Saturday, May 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA). The day will consist of presentations from members of the LA performing arts community, smaller break-out sessions, artistic workshops, and a midday outdoor bazaar with tables hosted by LA STAGE Alliance and Dance Resource Center member companies, partners and affiliates. The day concludes with a cocktail party! SDC will be hosting a break-out session as well as manning a table at the midday bazaar. Please stop by to say hello!
