Faculty Spotlight

Visual and Performing Arts
Students in the Period Styles for the Theatre class, along with Tracie Duncan, assistant professor of theatre and director of technical theatre, journeyed to Jamestown Settlement and Colonial Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Va., on February 18-20. Participants took a “behind the scenes” tour of the galleries in Jamestown and the Costume Shops, led by Christopher Daley, head of Historic Costuming for the Jamestown and Yorktown state sites. They had the opportunity to examine original garments from the 17th and 18th century, as well as the reproductions worn by the staff and interpreters at the parks.
