Meet the Newest Dell’Arte Characters

Yes, I know, another theatre post. But I did warn you last week how much I love theatre season. And this production is pretty special – and a refreshing interlude between holiday jollities. Not that I don’t enjoy theatrical holiday fun as much as the next person, but the annual Character Projects are a really important part of the students’ professional development at Dell’Arte and deserve a place of their own on the calendar.
