“Will Call” dropped in on Caitlin Sullivan, Artistic Director of the Williams College Summer Theatre Lab at the ’62 Center for Theatre and Dance. Caitlin, ’07, traces her roots back to the beginnings both of the Lab and the Center. Beginning this season, she is guiding the talents of Lab participants like rising senior Kimberly Golding, pictured above, who joined the conversation to describe some of her experiences with the program.

Plus: Doug Jones of Images Cinema discusses
“The Wolf Pack,” “Amy” and more.

The Williams College Summer Theatre Lab provides an opportunity for current Williams students, as well as returning Alumni professionals, to work in a theatrical environment free from commercial and critical pressures. The Lab’s goal is to nurture theatrical projects that foster creative experimentation, artistic risk taking, and the collaborative process.The Lab was established in 2003 by founding Artistic Director Kevin O’Rourke ’78, who provided a decade of artistic leadership.

This conversation with Doug Jones, Director of Images Cinema, was to have aired last week, but, due to technical malfusion, had to be delayed until this episode. As such, please note that references made to the films “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” and “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” refer to showings that have already passed. We regret this delay and apologize for any confusion (or irritation) this may have caused.
