On Sept 10, 2009, the Understudies of the Hilberry Theatre hosted a “get to know you luncheon” for the Hilberry Company in the theatre. Not only was delicious food eaten from Pronto Caterering, friendships were formed between the students and the Understudies.
From the Hilberry.com website, the following can be said about the Understudies:
“Founded in 1964 “to foster interest in the Wayne State University Theatre and primarily to support the Hilberry Theatre by fund raising, by promoting excellence, and by developing audiences,” the Understudies are as unique among theatre fundraising organizations as the groundbreaking theatre program they have supported for almost a half-century.”
We’re thankful to have them support us!
